Meet the Committed 60Hertz Team

Advocates for Traditional Methods Meeting Modern Technology

Our talented team members are proud to have worked with an array of customers from high-profile electric co-op, to small-scale utility & renewable energy asset owners.

 We empower local operators to be prosperous in their work, improve up-time and prevent system failures by proactively maintaining and optimizing energy assets. Our intuitive platform offers checklists, templates and workflows to help you manage your assets’ maintenance routine—a breeze for your maintenance teams to adopt and increase revenue generation.

Our Mission

60Hertz set out to finance and develop renewable assets in the notoriously cold and dark Arctic, heavily dependent on diesel. 

Maintaining prospective investors’ assets in locations with poor telecom service (where local agents had limited training and part-time pay) all foreshadowed failure. Worse, stories of infrastructure failings were numerous.

Given the founding team’s background in developing mobile apps for last-mile agents in emerging markets, and ancestry in Alaska’s primarily native villages, 60Hertz saw a market gap. 

 What if maintenance software could help individuals do their job with more confidence while gaining troubleshooting skills? 

What if maintenance software worked well for people who were wary of technology or didn’t have formal training? 

What if the people manually copying data points or interpreting the weekly fax from the field could do their jobs with less effort? 

The answer is 60Hertz.

Our team has invested more than 250 hours of field research rooted in human-centred design in multiple sectors and geographies with different types of workers. We’ve created a solution that boasts functionality and simplicity.

60Hertz constantly invests in learning about our users. The more we learn, the more we discover that people don’t know their value as a resource for their communities and employers. These hard-working, committed individuals should be hailed. Maintainers are carers, and we dedicate our work to the unsung and invisible tasks that yield meaningful service.
