Power Engineers opened a Boise office in 1990 and moved it to Meridian in 2008. On Wednesday, Bret Moffett, the freshly promoted CEO of Power Engineers will succeed Jack Hand, the CEO since 1998. Hand will stay on as chairman. Moffett said the board allowed him to stay at the Meridian office instead of moving to Hailey.

Pete Van Der Meulen and Hans Buhler founded Power Engineers in Pocatello in 1976. Their original headquarters burned the next year, so they relocated to Hailey. The founders are no longer involved in the company.

Today, Power Engineers has offices in 38 U.S. markets and another in Johannesburg in South Africa. Its geothermal project experience includes more than 1,800 MW of efficient, clean new generation in Nicaragua, Mexico, Kenya, Costa Rica, Iceland, Indonesia, Turkey, the Philippines, and the United States. For nearly three decades, Power Engineers’s team of experts has provided feasibility assessments, design engineering, and field engineering to some of the world’s leading geothermal project developers and operators.

Power Engineers will be exhibiting at the GRC Annual Meeting & GEA Geothermal Energy Expo, October 23-26 in Sacramento, California, USA.
