At NRG, we believe empowering future generations for success is the most rewarding investment an organization can make. That’s why we are honored to work with our distributed customer, Goldman Sachs, on their third annual Local College Collaborative program.
February 15th, 2019 marked our Sales Director Art Formas’ 41st anniversary in the energy industry. Well before we became known as NRG, Art worked for our predecessor, Houston Lighting and Power Company, as a Power Consultant—one of seven job titles he’s held in the industry to date.
Today’s businesses are securing renewable energy in record numbers. In fact, commercial and industrial companies contracted for more renewables last year than ever before — 6.5 GW compared to 2.8 GW in 2017. In Texas alone, the total amount of energy generated from wind and solar has reached nearly 20 percent in recent years. The state stands out for its abundance of renewables offered at attractive prices, motivating businesses to sign large offtake agreements.(1)
"At NRG, sustainability is at the center of everything that we do. It's more than the way we do business; it's an integral part of who we are and literally at the heart of our purpose of creating a sustainable energy future."-Mauricio Gutierrez, President and CEO, NRG Energy
Sysco and NRG Energy have been recognized by Smart Energy Decisions for their efforts in Renewable Energy Sourcing.
In June 2018, the two companies signed a ten-year renewable energy agreement, including the construction of three solar garden sites in the Houston and Dallas areas, which will support approximately 10 percent of Sysco’s U.S. electricity usage.
