When severe weather leads to power outages, our communities are disrupted, and everyone feels the impact. As the nation's largest competitive electricity generator, NRG provides temporary power for those in need by rolling in our mobile power vehicle, Power2Serve.
NRG responds to major power outages.
As a power producer, we are determined to provide hands-on support to the public at all times – especially following power outages and other emergencies. Superstorm Sandy hit close to home for many of us, and it compelled us to take action as a corporate citizen.
When we can, we bring our 26-foot-long truck, equipped with solar and diesel generators and a custom canopy to locations that really need our help. At Power2Serve, we will:
- Create an environment in our transportable, climate-controlled pavilion, where the public can gather to charge electronics, access Wi-Fi, stay up-to-date on the news and more.
- Deploy 40 kW of diesel and solar electric generators to power operations, lighting in the pavilion and a heavy extension cord to emergency management centers.
- Organize Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) to provide first-hand disaster relief from our three regional teams in California, New Jersey and Texas.
- Collaborate with FEMA and states to be available to respond.
As a Fortune 500 company, we have enough generation capacity to power nearly one-third of the U.S. population. But our approximately 50,000 MW of generation capacity doesn't mean much if we're not there for you when you need it most. Requested and ordered through your local federal or state government agency, the Power2Serve Program provides reliable power, and that's what we're here for. For you.
