NRG Energy Inc., 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.’s Pacific Gas and Electric is buying the power from Kansas South and Edison International’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.
