NRG to Host Ribbon-Cutting Event at Borrego I Solar Generation Station

Event commemorates completion of 26 MW Solar Photovoltaic Facility in San Diego County providing consumers with cleaner energy choices.

NRG Energy, Inc. (NYSE: NRG), through its wholly owned subsidiary NRG Solar, will co-host a ribbon-cutting event later this morning to commemorate the completion of the NRG Solar Borrego I Project in Borrego Springs.

Located 90 miles east of San Diego, the 26 megawatt (AC) solar photovoltaic facility started commercial operations in February 2013 and is currently producing clean, renewable electricity for SDG&E customers. At full capacity, Borrego can generate enough power to meet the energy demands of approximately 20,800 homes. This means that the facility can potentially avoid the emission of 33,000 tons of carbon into the atmosphere, the equivalent of taking 6,000 cars off the road.
