Generation

Generation

NRG's core business is wholesale generation, and we have one of the largest and most diversified power generation portfolios in the U.S.‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ We're committed to powering businesses, homes and communities nationwide with a balanced generation fleet.

Conventional

Natural gas

Our focus on natural gas generation continues to expand, with new plants under construction and efficiency measures being deployed across our fleet. These efforts help support a more sustainable grid while also creating the flexibility needed to integrate more renewables.‬‬‬‬

Coal

We understand that coal will remain a significant part of the global power generation portfolio, but we're also working to reduce emissions at our existing coal-fired plants. This helps us keep the lights on for millions of homes and businesses as we transition to cleaner energy solutions.

Nuclear

Nuclear power generation is zero-carbon and plays a part in the broader transition to a sustainable energy future. NRG indirectly owns a 44 percent interest in a 1,176-MW nuclear power facility in Bay City, Texas.

Preferred resources contracts

Our commitment to California's growing preferred resources market includes innovative commercial and industrial energy products and technologies that will help reduce energy demand, cut carbon emissions and improve grid reliability in Southern California.

District energy

NRG Energy Centers are energy-efficient, highly reliable and environmentally sound methods of heating and cooling buildings that use emissions controls to help improve air quality. NRG (primarily through NRG Yield) owns and operates Energy Centers, which are district energy systems, and combined heat and power plants that generate power and use heat from that process to create steam and/or chilled water.
