nrg energy inc (NRG) Key Developments

NRG's Unit to Provide 20MW of Solar Generation to Cisco Systems

The commercial renewable development unit of NRG will provide 20MW of solar production to Cisco System's Silicon Valley base in California. As part of a 20-year power-purchase agreement, the deal will use production from NRG's Solar Blythe II plant in the Sonoran Desert, on the border of California and Arizona. Terms were not disclosed. For Cisco, the 20MW will allow the global technology company to fulfill up to 25% of its power demand by 2017, if the project goes on line as expected in 2016. Although the firm has secured rights to production from a 2MW solar plant in Massachusetts, the deal with NRG is its most concentrated move to reaching its renewable goals, especially for its California operations.

California Utility Regulators Approves Carlsbad Plant Contract with San Diego Gas & Electric Company

California utility regulators voted 4-1 on May 21 to allow San Diego Gas & Electric Co. to sign a 20-year power supply contract with NRG Energy Inc. that will assure that a 500-MW version of the proposed Carlsbad Energy Center gets built on the beachfront of Carlsbad, Calif. The California Public Utilities Commission's decision two weeks ago to withhold its approval for further consideration kept the merchant power developer on edge and prompted Commissioner Catherine Sandoval to call an all-party meeting on May 19 to determine why the contract was needed immediately rather than waiting for further analysis of possible alternatives, including Sempra Energy subsidiary SDG&E's short list of bidders. In the end, all commissioners but Sandoval voted to approve the power purchase and tolling agreement, including Commissioners Liane Randolph and Carla Peterman, who had expressed reluctance to approve the gas-fired plant contract before examining greener alternatives including energy storage, transmission, renewables and energy efficiency. The majority decided they would be cutting it too close to await uncertain alternatives in the face of the need for additional resources in the transmission-constrained load pocket of northern San Diego and southern Orange counties brought on by the forced retirement of Edison International subsidiary Southern California Edison Co.'s San Onofre nuclear generating station and the need to retire the Encina plant in Carlsbad to comply with state requirements to end once-through cooling of gas-fired generation.
