Natural Awakenings Dallas -Fort Worth Metroplex Edition


Green Pioneer Breeze Energy

Mar 02, 2015 05:48PM

Most wind power companies are owned by big energy corporations, but Breeze Energy is owned by Walter Hornaday and John Spicer. Together, they have made an ongoing commitment to providing 100 percent clean, green Texas wind energy at an affordable price. In a state with enough wind power to meet more than 18 times its current electricity needs, they won’t do coal, they won’t do gas and they won’t do nuclear, either.

When he was studying for his degree in engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, Hornaday told his professor that he wanted to write his master’s thesis on wind power. He was promptly told to quit working on “sugary, tree-hugging ideas” and get serious about his career.

A background in mechanical engineering and an MBA from Texas A&M led John Spicer to an origination and business development position at a major traditional energy corporation. Purchasing wind energy for the company made him realize that must be a better way.

Hornaday and Spicer also believe in giving back. Breeze Energy has a strong and growing education program, providing scholarships and grants to Texas students and enrichment programs to their schools.
