Description

Amazon, Apple, Google and your local power company. One of these things is not like the other. But utility executive David Crane says utilities should aspire to be in league with the strongest tech brands. Whatís at stake? Electric companies must quickly find innovative ways to deliver clean and affordable energy or more severe weather will destabilize the global economy. Government regulation alone wonít get the job done.

NRG is involved with some of the largest solar energy projects in the world including Ivanpah and Agua Caliente in California. Crane says consumers should have choices and that doesnít mean deciding between powering your home today and the health of your family and our planet tomorrow. Katie Fehrenbacher writes about how innovative technologies are bringing exciting new changes to the way America produces and uses energy.

Join us for a conversation about innovation, connected lifestyles and powering our future.
