Our Story

   On March 7, 2010, we experienced a house fire that consumed everything we owned including our beloved black lab, Jersey.  But like many tragedies it opened doors we never thought of.  In 2011 as we were making plans to rebuild our home, Jerry intrigued by geothermal, sought out Innovative Energy to install a Geothermal heating and cooling system.  We were the third installation for Innovative Energy.  We were impressed with owner, Jerry Sand’s knowledge, detail, and customer service and even more impressed with the cost savings in our heating and cooling bill.  

   Who would have thought that would be the start of Jerry’s career and fulfill his lifelong dream of starting a family business.  In 2015, Jerry W. started working with Jerry Sand at Innovative Energy learning everything he could about Geothermal and the business.  On September 24, 2021, that dream came true when Jerry and Jacki Waltman purchased the business and started Innovative Energy Systems LLC.  But the dream doesn’t end there, we are excited to have our son, Jackson, after graduation from UW-Madison in Renewable Energy to join our team.  And proud to have two daughters, Jillian and Josie, currently in college that will be a part of the business as well.  We have visions of expanding the business to include other renewable options, such as solar power, and potentially develop net-zero energy developments.  Whatever we pursue we will always strive to provide excellent customer service.  

   Innovative Energy is a small family-owned business that specializes in designing and installing geothermal heating and cooling systems.  Geothermal systems is all we do.  Innovative Energy is small, which means we have a lean and economical operation that will translate into competitive system prices for you.  Small also means your project will have our full attention every step of the way.
