Louisiana Generating Continues Reducing Emissions At Big Cajun II Generating Station

“This agreement provides greater strength for Big Cajun II through additional controls that will allow the plant to comply with environmental regulations both now and in the future,” said Vosburg. “In addition, the mitigation projects covered by the agreement will provide an opportunity to give back to our community as it showcases NRG Energy's alternative energy solutions such as solar and electrical vehicles in Louisiana. This is a win-win-win situation – a win for the environment, a win for our customers and a win for our community.”

About Louisiana Generating and NRG Energy
