NRG Energy completes 6 MW community clean energy project in California | PV Magazine
One of the first of its kind in the U.S., the NRG Community 1 Solar Generating Facility has been developed in collaboration with the Center for Energy Sustainability at San Diego State University’s (SDSU) Imperial Valley Campus.
The utility provider will sell the solar power at a competitive rate to customers signed up to the local community solar program, which is similar to a previous NRG-backed community scheme launched in Vermont, whereby low-cost, clean energy is available to households that may not have the means to install their own solar rooftop arrays.
