NRG Energy Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiary NRG Solar, has completed the 66 MW Alpine Solar Generating Station. According to the company, the project is the largest fully operational solar plant in California.

The station's electricity will be sold to Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) under a 20-year power purchase agreement. Fong Wan, the utility's senior vice president of energy procurement, notes that the new facility builds upon PG&E's green energy initiatives.

"Pacific Gas and Electric Co. remains committed to providing our customers with a comprehensive portfolio of energy resources that incorporates all forms of cost-effective clean energy as California marches forward into a clean energy future," says Wan. “PG&E delivers some of the cleanest energy in the nation to our customers, more than half of which comes from sources which are carbon-free. The Alpine Solar Generating Station will help PG&E grow its clean energy portfolio and make progress toward California’s 33 percent renewable energy goal.”
