March 2008: "NRG Energy, Inc., a competitive energy provider, has a diversified generation portfolio, distinguished by its range in geography, fuel source and dispatch level. NRG’s global portfolio of projects totals approximately 25,000 net MW. Founded in 1989, NRG is a wholesale power generation company, primarily engaged in the ownership and operation of power generation facilities and the sale of energy, capacity and related products in the United States and internationally. We have a diverse portfolio of electric eneration facilities in terms of geography, fuel type and dispatch levels, which helps us mitigate risk.
Operations include competitive energy production and cogeneration facilities, power marketing, district heating and cooling production, thermal energy production and resource recovery facilities.
NRG’s portfolio of projects is primarily in North America but also in Europe, Australia and Latin America. Our projects use a wide array of fuel sources including fossil fuels (natural gas, oil, coal and nuclear) and refuse-derived fuels.
NRGalso has a diverse portfolio in terms of dispatch type. We have a variety of baseload, intermediate and peaking units to create a balanced portfolio. NRG’s baseload units run most often and provide power to meet day-to-day needs, while our intermediate and peaking units are dispatched during periods of higher demand."http://www.nrgenergy.com/pdf/Overview.pdf
October 2007: "Other utilities and independent power companies are also laying the groundwork for a new wave of U.S. nuclear plants. On Sept. 24, NRG Energy filed the first full application for a new nuclear unit since the partial meltdown of Pennsylvania's Three Mile Island plant in 1979. Then the Tennessee Valley Authority approved plans to build two new reactors in northern Alabama, where it abandoned two mostly finished units in 1988 when electricity demand failed to meet forecasts. Earlier, Constellation Energy Group filed a partial license application to add a nuclear unit to its existing site in Calvert Cliffs, Md."http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/10/07/AR2007100701324.html

QUOTE: Many environmental groups, torn between concern about climate and long-standing antipathy toward nuclear power, are seizing on the cost issue. "We're not an anti-nuclear group," says Jeremy Symons, executive director of the global warming program at the National Wildlife Federation. "But it doesn't make sense for the government to be investing in nuclear when the money could be put into renewables and energy efficiency."
