‘Tis the season for hanging holly, being jolly and stringing lights around your home.

So what if the money you spent on lighting your tree, warming your home and cooking for holiday parties could spread that same holiday cheer with people in your entire community? That’s where becoming an NRG customer comes in.

With a wide array of energy choices for every customer’s budget and lifestyle, including predictable fixed-price electricity plans, cash back and rewards programs, switching to NRG might be the holiday gift that keeps on giving. Plus, with NRG’s latest expansion of natural gas services, you’ll be able to bundle electric and natural gas together.
What’s more, depending on where you live within Pennsylvania, you have a variety of plans available to choose from including sustainable wind-generated energy or 100 percent carbon-offset natural gas. Besides simplifying your energy bills, there’s a variety of ways NRG is making holiday spirits bright for customers.

It’s helping to feed hungry Philadelphians

Each year NRG partners with various organizations and businesses to support great causes like Philabundance and MANNA by donating time and money to help reduce the number of children and adults who go to bed hungry. This year is no exception. In addition to supporting the annual Philabundance food drive, NRG supported MANNA with the launch of its NRG Gives program.

…And dozens of other Philadelphia charities

For the past three years, NRG has hosted a charity flag football game and gingerbread house decorating event with local media personalities. Regardless of his or her athletic or decorating skills, each participant’s charity received at least $1,000, with the MVP of the flag football game taking home an additional $5,000. Between those two events this year alone, NRG donated $40,000 to local nonprofits.

It supports local (sustainable) businesses

The NRG Local Power Plan allows you to purchase power from a plant not far from Philly. The Hunterstown, Pennsylvania natural gas-fired plant employs 33 skilled technicians in the community to oversee production. Plus, updates to the plant’s combustion and steam turbines have reduced its emissions by more than 60 percent. The plant was recently awarded an Environmental Stewardship Award by the Gettysburg Adams Chamber of Commerce for its commitment to protecting the local environment with tactful approaches to recycling residual waste.

It’s helping keep our air cleaner  

NRG’s partnership with Lincoln Financial Field created Philly’s largest solar array—11,000 solar panels and a row of micro-wind turbines power the Birds home field. And now, you can get the same type of solar power at your home with NRG Home Solar.
