NRG Completes Two 20-Megawatt Solar Plants in California

NRG Energy Inc. (NRG), the largest independent U.S. electricity generator, completed two 20-megawatt solar farms in California that sell power to the state’s two largest utilities.

The Kansas South project in Kings County began delivering power last month and the TA-High Desert project in Lancaster, California, went into operation in March, NRG said today in a statement.

NRG, based in Princeton, New Jersey, bought the projects this year from Sharp Corp.’s Recurrent Energy. PG&E Corp. (PCG)’s Pacific Gas and Electric is buying the power from Kansas South and Edison International (EIX)’s Southern California Edison has a contract for energy from TA-High Desert.

The price the utilities are paying for the power wasn’t disclosed in the statement.
