Who we are
Windfree Wind and Solar Energy Company was founded early in 2009 by a team of creative energy visionaries and early adopters of sustainable technologies. Windfree's team includes a well-respected, multi-disciplinary group of Chicago’s business, architectural, artistic and community leaders. The team believes alternative energy solutions must be researched, installed, monitored, tested and be supported by local legislation. For potential clients, from institutions to private users and from architects to families, we can assess energy needs, outline objectives, determine appropriate energy solutions, implement the necessary systems and processes from purchasing to installation and from project management to permitting and future energy planning. Windfree’s products and services are proactive responses and practical solutions to the energy crisis and are ways to move toward energy independence.
We are the future.
Save money. Save the world.

The Windfree Foundation
The Windfree Foundation was established in 2018 as an independent foundation. Our mission is to improve energy efficiency, advance the development and use of renewable energy resources and to focus on the energy needs and education of Illinois.
Our foundation has provided financial support for clean energy investments in Illinois through a variety of programs. Since 2017, we've awarded grants to Illinois non-profit organizations, schools, municipalities, and other local and state government agencies.
Our team recently completed an installation for Willrett Farms in Malta, a town in Northwest Illinois. The Windfree team installed a total of 360 solar panels to power this large agricultural business.
