nrg energy inc (NRG) Key Developments

Nrg Energy, Inc. Announces New Sustainable Headquarters

NRG Energy Inc. will host a ceremony for the company's new sustainable headquarters, which will feature established and green technologies, including an on-site solar field, water recycling systems and NJ's first electric-vehicle-to-grid (eV2g) charging station. The new building will demonstrate the ability of businesses to pursue sustainable practices and reduce overall dependence on 'rickety old' grid system.

NRG Energy Wins Multiple Contracts with Southern California Edison

NRG Energy has been awarded multiple contracts with Southern California Edison to repower the company's Mandalay facility in Oxnard with 262 megawatts (MW) of newer, more flexible and efficient natural gas generation under a 20-year PPA with SCE, install 178 MW of ‘Preferred Resources’ that include both demand response and energy efficiency products to be deployed under long-term contracts at sites across Southern California, develop a two megawatt-hour battery storage system. The repowering of Mandalay is designed to ensure continued reliability and to help integrate renewable into the grid and will also involve the removal the two large steam units at the site, enhancing the coastal view shed. The repowered Mandalay units are expected to come online in 2020. The Mandalay repowering project complements NRG's 600 MW Carlsbad Energy Center, in which NRG will remove the five steam units at its existing site in Carlsbad, California and replace them with smaller, flexible, fast start peaking units. The Carlsbad Energy Center is expected to help integrate renewable into the grid, eliminate once-through cooling, and result in a significantly reduced environmental and visual profile. The Carlsbad Energy Center is expected to come online in late 2017, and is awaiting CPUC approval of a 20 year PPA with SDG&E.

Construction Begins on New NRG Natural Gas Peaking Plant Near Houston

NRG Energy, Inc. announced that construction has begun on an approximately 360 megawatt, natural gas-fired peaking plant at a site near Bacliff, Texas, southeast of Houston. When completed, the units will produce enough electricity to power an additional 72,000 Texas homes when needed most during times of peak demand. The new facility will be located on a 230-acre site which was once part of the former PH Robinson power plant. It will use natural gas to power six GE 7E, economical, fast-start combustion turbines. The units require no water for cooling making them well-suited to operate in water-constrained Texas. With their fast-start capability, the peaking units have the potential to help integrate renewable power from intermittent wind and solar generation into the ERCOT grid. The air permitting process began in 2013 and was granted by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in August 2014. The project will benefit from a number of unique advantages which allow NRG to construct the project at a cost of approximately $400 per kilowatt, a significant discount to typical new build costs. Specifically, the gas turbines will be relocated from a site in New Albany, Mississippi to the Houston area at a location NRG already owns and is immediately adjacent to the switchyard where they expect to connect to the transmission grid.
