Pete Harsy

In 2020 after decades of working in corporate renewable energy Pete decided to take a leap and form his own company with one goal in mind; to give landowners the option to control when they are paid for leasing their land to renewable energy developers and producers. He had met so many owners over his tenure who wished they had a choice regarding the lease payment structure, so that they could consider their individual financial/business needs before deciding which payment option was best for them. Pete saw that the needs of many landowners were not being met by the traditional lease terms and Madison Street Energy was born to help bridge the gap.

Pete is from the Southside of Chicago and his education took him to the University of San Diego for his bachelor’s degree and back home for his juris doctorate from DePaul University’s College of Law. He chose law for his path because ultimately, he wanted his work to help others. After college he went right to work as an attorney and after a stint in commercial real estate, he found his niche at Lincoln Clean Energy, and he felt that he was honing in on his target of helping others by joining the pursuit for renewable energy production.

These days Pete lives and works in Chicago, staying close to his extended family and lifelong friends.
