Originally founded in 2002 as Windfinders, Inc. in Flagstaff, Arizona, the firm was among the first to support early stage wind development in Arizona through resource assessments and field project management. Windfinders was a member of the Arizona Wind Working Group which developed the Arizona Wind Map. In addition, Windfinders supported Northern Arizona University’s Arizona State Land Wind Assessment.
In 2006, Windfinders helped to develop Arizona’s first wind commercial scale farm, the Dry Lake Wind Project. The 63MW Dry Lake Wind Power Project was developed and is operated by Iberdrola Renewables, the largest provider of wind power in the world. In 2007, the firm expanded its service offering to the entire Southwest and moved to California. It then expanded its service offering to provide field engineering to support solar resource assessment programs.
