What inspired you to start Lyssy Energy?
Lyssy Energy Enterprises all began with a favor to my father. He asked me to put together an energy lease that would safeguard his land for ranching and farming while offering an additional source of income.
A couple years later, we started partnering with eco-friendly energy developers. There were definitely difficulties and drawbacks, closed doors and unequal partnerships, but we used this time to really sharpen our craft. If we wanted our organization to grow and succeed then we would need to take a risk, we recognized that. In 2020, when the world was forced to slow down due to the pandemic, we decided to take that threat. We utilized 2020 to rebrand Lyssy Energy into the company we had always dreamed about. In 2021, we have actually reestablished ourselves to the world– no longer as an energy service business, but as renewable energy developers with the hope of owning and running utility-scale sustainable energy projects.
