Mr. Westerhoff has over 25 years of experience in electrical engineering and specifically solar energy design and integration.  He started Innovative Energy in Summit County Colorado over 20 years ago, servicing a need for the professional integration of remote renewable energy projects.  With the foundation of honesty, integrity, and commitment to customer service, Innovative Energy has grown to what it is today.  The company now provides PV technical consulting services, commercial operation and maintenance programs, project management, 3rd party non biased design assessment, solar repair, and hybrid energy design for all types of clients. 

As the solar market has grown, municipalities, local school districts, and companies have depended on Mr. Westerhoff’s balanced and honest assessments of their project goals.  His company has designed and managed the integration of many commercial solar projects, such as a 500 kW solar array for the Town of Breckenridge government buildings,  250 kW for Brown’s Compounding Center, and design and consulting services for Clean Energy Collective's Summit County Solar Garden of over 500 kWs.

While consulting with companies developing PV products in Papau New Guinea, his unique expertise in remote power systems in Colorado's high country has proven invaluable.  Off-grid applications for the oil and gas industry have been design with robustness for important power loads and monitoring equipment.  Offering clients the best in solar technology, robust wind products, and storage solutions has differentiated Innovative Energy from the rest in the industry.
