Future-Proofing the Fleet: Plant Retrofits Progress NRG's Sustainable Energy Future


NRG Energy’s large-scale wind generation as well as our utility-scale, commercial, community and residential solar generation are an integral component of the Company’s strategy to produce increasingly cleaner power.

NRG Celebrates Ninth Annual Global Giving Week Nationwide

It is here! This week kicks off our 9th annual Global Giving Week. Last year, NRG employees across 13 states volunteered over 6,300 hours, served 74 nonprofits and donated in excess of $5 million dollars – pretty awesome. I couldn’t be more excited to join you once again this year, as we serve our neighbors and friends over the next several days. With more than 92 volunteer opportunities from food banks, to gardening, to solar installation – together, we’re going to make a big impact in our community this year!
