Todd Haynes is a renewable energy specialist with a broad range of professional experience including business, technical, real estate and writing. At POWER Engineers, Todd manages wind, solar and energy storage projects – ranging from studies and preliminary design for early project development to SCADA design & electrical protection for new projects to ongoing support for operational projects. Previous energy experience includes development and construction of utility scale wind and commercial wind-to-hydrogen facilities; researching small hydropower, energy storage and wind energy systems at INL; co-owning and managing Idaho’s first commercial wind project; and managing wind energy programs at Boise State University. In his first career, Todd spent 10+ years appraising real estate. During that time, Todd appraised a few off-grid houses powered by solar and batteries; that sparked his interest in solar and led directly to his pursuit of an engineering education and career in renewable energy.
