NRG Energy And Digicel Partner To Bring Renewable, Affordable And Reliable Electricity To The People Of The Caribbean

NRG Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NRG) and Digicel today jointly announced at the Clinton Global Initiative conference in New York a partnership to acquire, construct and operate renewable energy projects under development in the Caribbean region. NRG and Digicel stand ready to bring financial and environmental benefits to the governments, utilities and peoples of the Caribbean in a venture that could see the two companies making a sizeable investment in the region.

“NRG’s work in Haiti has demonstrated the transformative impact that renewable energy can have on communities that otherwise lack access to affordable, reliable electricity,” said David Crane, Chief Executive Officer of NRG. “We stand ready with Digicel to support the widespread adoption of renewables across the Caribbean, thereby helping to drive down electricity costs for the region and reducing the deleterious impacts of fossil fuel generation on the Caribbean ecosystem.”

“In the Caribbean today, distributed and utility-scale renewable energy projects can deliver a much lower cost of energy than fossil fuels, without subsidies,” said Colm Delves, Group CEO of Digicel. “Our intent is to identify projects from across the region – and to support these in completing development, financing, and construction. This will translate into substantive and lasting energy savings for the governments and people of the Caribbean.”

Crane added, “NRG’s vision is for solar-led renewable medium- to large-scale off-grid systems across the region. We understand a mix of technologies, from batteries to wind energy systems, will be necessary to offer the greatest financial and environmental benefits to Caribbean stakeholders, and we are open to supporting all systems with demonstrated performance history.”

NRG and Digicel endeavor to partner on projects throughout the Caribbean, with the aim of acquiring, constructing, and owning these projects for their lifetime. Through an RFP process, NRG and Digicel are soliciting developers, governments, installers and others to provide information on renewable energy projects under development for possible investment. The RFP will be formally launched on September 30, 2013, and end on November 15, 2013.
