What inspired you to start Lyssy Energy?
Lyssy Energy Enterprises all started with a favor to my dad. He asked me to put together an energy lease that would secure his land for ranching and farming while supplying an extra income. Prior to we understood it, my partner and I were helping others in the very same scenario. So, we made it main, got and began an organization to work.
A couple years later, we began partnering with sustainable energy developers. There were definitely obstacles and drawbacks, closed doors and unequal collaborations, but we used this time to actually develop our craft. We realized that if we desired our company to grow and succeed then we would need to take a threat. In 2020, when the world was required to slow down due to the pandemic, we decided to take that risk. We used 2020 to rebrand Lyssy Energy into the company we had constantly dreamed about. In 2021, we have reintroduced ourselves to the world– no longer as an energy service company, but as renewable resource developers with the hope of owning and operating utility-scale renewable resource tasks.
