“We are Direct Energy” – Bryan Treadway

Welcome to the first edition of  “We are Direct Energy” where we are introducing you to some of the people that make up Direct Energy. Today, we’d like you to get to know Bryan Treadway. Bryan works at Direct Energy in Houston and is an avid Texas Southern Flounder conservationist. During the past three years, Bryan has been instrumental in efforts to keep the southern flounder population from continuing to decline by volunteering his time to raise money and organize events to educate the public on the importance of this delicate fishery.

Bryan Treadway stands in a boat in the Gulf Coast while being filmed for a PBS television special about fishery conservation.

1. What do you do at Direct Energy?
I am a Business Development Manager with DEB, helping business customers manage their energy.

2. How did you come to Direct Energy?
I came from Shell Energy Services where I sold retail natural gas.

3. What is your favorite part of living where you do?
My favorite part of living in Texas is warm winters and there is always something to do outside any time of the year.

4. How would you spend a stay-cation in your city?
A stay-cation in town would be with my kids and wife at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center, which is a 155-acre non-profit urban nature sanctuary in the middle of Houston.

5. How do you save energy at home?
I am the biggest energy conservationist that I know, besides the CFL light bulbs, I have installed motion sensor light switches in the bathroom, have upgraded all to double insulated windows and my roof is white to reflect sun light. I have even recently installed solar tubes in the hallway where there are no windows so natural light is mainly used there. Did you know when the moon is out, it can actually light my hallway at night!
