NRG Energy opens offices in California, focuses on residential solar

NRG Home Solar, a subsidiary of NRG Energy (NYSE: NRG), is opening two California offices in Merced and San Diego. The expansion creates more than 100 job opportunities.

“As residential solar becomes increasingly attractive – economically as well as environmentally – to California homeowners, so does NRG’s growing ability to provide solar-driven home energy solutions to Californians seeking the many benefits associated with generating most of your own energy cleanly and quietly,” said David Crane, chief executive officer of NRG Energy. “The distributed clean energy movement is about personal empowerment and playing your role in creating a sustainable future and we believe that is the future that the vast majority of Californians envision for themselves and their State.”

In addition to the expansion, NRG Home Solar announced that for the first time the company is offering solar loans to homeowners. Previously, the company offered only loan programs.

“We are excited to be rapidly expanding in a state like California that is committed to solar growth and affordable home energy solutions,” said Kelcy Pegler Jr., president of NRG Home Solar. “This expansion allows us to meet growing consumer demand as more and more California homeowners look to lock in lower energy costs and reduce their carbon footprint with rooftop solar.”
