RICH BLASER

CO-FOUNDER & CO-CEO, INFINITE ENERGY, GAINESVILLE

Infinite Energy is a natural gas and electricity provider, supplying wholesale service across the country and providing retail natural gas in Florida, Georgia, New York and Ohio and electricity in Texas. Blaser led an unsuccessful effort to bring electricity choice to Florida. “In addition to saving the state an estimated $5 billion every year, choice would allow renewable energy to flourish and give consumers more control over this essential service,” he says.

EDUCATION Florida State University (BS)
SOMETHING SURPRISING I once had to leave college for my
grades. But when I got a job and began talking to my co-workers about their struggles, it was a major reality check, and it changed my life. I went back to college.
FLORIDA ISSUE Logistics. Florida’s population is continuing to grow. Successfully supporting that growth means planning for the needed resources (including energy), jobs and infrastructure now.
