4-MW Solar Facility, St. Croix USVI

NRG Energy Inc. (NRG), the largest independent U.S. electricity producer, bought a 4-megawatt solar farm from Toshiba Corp. in 2014. It will sell power to the Virgin Islands Water & Power Authority under a 25-year contract.

The Spanish Town Estate Solar project on the island of St. Croix will produce enough power for more than 1,500 homes.

NRG has developed solar-power systems in Haiti and elsewhere in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and is building a renewable-energy microgrid on Virgin Group Ltd. Chairman Richard Branson’s Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands.
