NRG starts operations at community solar project in California

NRG Energy (NYSE: NRG) began operations at the NRG Community 1 Solar Generating Facility in California.

Sol Orchard developed the 6-MW project in collaboration with the Center for Energy Sustainability at San Diego State University (SDSU)’s Imperial Valley Campus. The Imperial Irrigation District will purchase all of the electricity output from the project under a 25-year power purchase agreement, and sell it at a competitive rate to interested customers through a community solar program.

The community project covers nearly 37 acres of land owned by SDSU and has more than 25,000 modules.
