Creating the largest competitive power generator in the United States, NRG now has a diverse fleet of almost 100 generation assets with a total capacity of approximately 47,000 megawatts (MW) concentrated in three domestic regions: East, Gulf Coast and West. The newly combined company has about 47,000 megawatts of generating capacity comprised of nearly 100 generating facilities in 18 states. (Source: NRG Energy, Inc.)
