JBB Advanced Technologies Founder, Chairman, and CEO, John B. Billingsley, previously founded TriGlobal Energy in 2009 as a developer/generator of wind energy in West Texas. TGE eventually expanded into utility-scale wind, solar, and battery storage projects in seven states: Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Texas, Wyoming, and Virginia.
TGE’s early success was built on a proprietary business model created by John Billingsley and called The Wind Force Plan. This innovation challenged industry norms, which favored the developer at the expense of the landowner; instead, all landowners and community members were invited to become active financial partners in a project’s development and success regardless of the placement of the actual energy generation equipment. The plan was so well-received that within three years, more than 650,000 acres of West Texas land were under lease.
