NRG Energy Services, a subsidiary of NRG Energy, has agreed to provide operations and maintenance at two Texas facilities owned by Golden Spread Electric Cooperative Inc.
The two facilities are Mustang, a 958 MW natural gas turbine plant in Denver City; and Antelope Elk Energy Center, a 744 MW natural gas facility in Abernathy.
These plants will join nine other generation stations operated and maintained by NRG Energy Services, representing a 9.2-GW portfolio.
We believe that NRG’s strong industry experience and vast resources that provide top tier operations to its own large fleet of assets will provide significant benefit to Golden Spread’s members by bringing the same experience and resources to our generation assets,” said Jeff Pippin, vice president of production, Golden Spread.
Golden Spread Electric Cooperative is a consumer-owned utility with 16 member systems providing service to approximately 287,000 customers in the Oklahoma Panhandle and an area covering 24 percent of Texas, including the Texas Panhandle, South Plains and Edwards Plateau Regions.
