NRG Renew LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of NRG Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NRG), the country’s largest independent power producer, announced plans to develop a 20 megawatt (MW) solar energy facility that will generate clean, reliable solar power for delivery to Cisco’s San Jose headquarters. NRG Renew LLC will convert its NRG Solar Blythe II location, which is a 153-acre parcel that has been under development by NRG since 2010, into a solar installation that will help Cisco reach its goal of using renewable sources for at least 25 percent of its electricity needs by 2017. The project is scheduled to begin commercial operation by the end of 2016.

“Partnerships with industry leaders like Cisco are a key part of our vision for a clean energy future because they reinforce just how integral renewable energy is to the everyday nature of business,” said Tom Doyle, president and CEO of NRG Renew. “We are proud to work with Cisco to develop unique renewable solutions that help them reach their sustainability goals.”

“Enabling a diverse energy supply through low-carbon and renewable sources is key to meeting Cisco’s energy goals set forth in 2013. We thoroughly vetted potential solutions to help us realize our sustainability goals and are thrilled to collaborate with NRG to source renewable energy and increase our use of solar power. We look forward to exploring new, innovative ways to green the power we use,” said Ali Ahmed, Global Energy and Sustainability Leader, Cisco.
