"The Borrego I Solar Generating Station will provide clean renewable solar power for our customers, and [it] is the first utility-scale local renewable project to come online in San Diego County since 2006," says Matt Burkhart, vice president of electric and fuel procurement for SDG&E. “We applaud NRG Energy for their perseverance in getting this project constructed and look forward to more local renewable projects.”
