NRG Energy Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiary NRG Solar, has announced the start of commercial operations for the 26 MW Borrego I Solar Generating Station.

Located northeast of Borrego Springs, Calif., the photovoltaic project has a 25-year power purchase agreement with San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E).

"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.”
