NRG Sees Path to More California Solar Rooftops Starting on Lawn

NRG Energy, the largest U.S. independent power producer, wants to sell more rooftop solar systems by helping homeowners take better care of their lawns in drought-stricken California.

NRG will begin offering Wednesday a sprinkler-control system that’s linked to a home’s wi-fi network and checks the weather before watering the lawn. Giving consumers the ability to better manage water usage may cut consumption significantly.
