As of Dec. 31, 2015.



Energy has always been a passion of mine, not for what it is, but for what it represents: a better life. I am constantly reminded of the importance of what we do and the great responsibility we have to think not just about the impact of our business today, but also about how those impacts will affect tomorrow. I invite you – colleagues, investors, customers, partners and all consumers of electricity – to join us in this journey toward creating an energy future that is cleaner, more reliable and that enables us to continue improving people's lives for years to come.

NRG President and CEO
