In Time for Hurricane Season: NRG Home to Offer Home Backup Generators

June 18, 2015 at 8:01 AM EDT

Backup power solutions, available for lease or purchase, provide customers peace of mind during inclement weather

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 18, 2015-- With the start of the 2015 hurricane season, consumers are looking for the latest in personal power technologies for their homes. Texas and Northeast residents can now turn to an energy company they trust for affordable home electricity generators from NRG Home, a member of the NRG family.

NRG Backup Generators provide a variety of supplementary power solutions in many states, combined with affordable financing options. During unpredictable weather-related power outages, whether during hurricanes in the Gulf Coast or nor’easters along the Atlantic Seaboard, backup generators provide homeowners peace of mind with an easy and cost-effective option to safeguard their home’s energy supply. During power outages, the generators switch on automatically, providing homeowners energy independence and a reliable personal power solution, where batteries or other systems may not offer enough support.

“At NRG Home, we’re about providing more options to our customers to control their own energy and access their power wherever they are,” said Steve McBee, president and CEO of NRG Home. “Our NRG Home Backup Generator solution adds another dimension to our platform of integrated home energy services that includes home solar, portable power, electric vehicle charging and connected home products and solutions. Backup generation is particularly critical for consumers who require home medical care or have other unique needs, and this solution makes it easier for all our customers to prepare for power disruptions and safeguard their home power supply.”

Backup generators use advanced technology to keep power flowing to homes in case of an outage, and come in various sizes to suit different homeowner needs. The smallest option is a 10KW system suitable for 1,000- to 1,500-square-foot homes. Larger generators, 20KW and higher, are available and can power residences up to 5,000-square feet. The generators run on natural gas or propane, and start automatically when there’s a power outage. To help conserve and manage energy during an outage, generators can also be set to power only critical appliances.

NRG Backup Generators are available for purchase, lease, or financing options available across North Texas and the Houston area. In the Northeast U.S. NRG Backup Generators are available for purchase or finance. Customers can schedule a free in-home assessment to determine the solution that best meets their needs and discuss extended warranty and maintenance options.
