Working at NRG

Our vision is to create a sustainable energy future by safely providing reliable, cleaner power that enhances people's lives and delivers value to our stakeholders. As NRG CEO Mauricio Gutierrez said in our 2016 Sustainability Report, "Electricity plays a central role in our society, supporting everything from the digital economy to the industrial heartland. It profoundly impacts billions of lives, and that is what drives our vision to create a sustainable energy future."

We have a diverse, balanced generation portfolio that includes natural gas, coal, solar, wind and nuclear power, and we combine this with our leading retail business that serves nearly 3 million customers.
