NRG Develops 20 MW Solar Facility for Cisco
NRG Renew plans to develop a 20 MW solar energy facility that will deliver energy to Cisco‘s San Jose headquarters. NRG Renew 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.
Electricity generated by the solar installation will be sold to Cisco under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA).
The NRG Solar Blythe II location is located in the Sonoran Desert near the Arizona and California border.
Cisco has also installed about 2 MW of solar at Cisco facilities over the past two years, including a new system in Boxborough, Mass.
