The South Texas Project (STP), a nuclear facility near Bay City, Texas, co-owned by NRG, is considered one of the most exemplary nuclear power plants in the country. STP has received more awards and honors than any nuclear power plant in the United States. In 2010, STP was the first nuclear facility to be named to the EHS list of America's Safest Companies and the plant is the only repeat winner of the industry's highest commendation, the B. Ralph Sylvia Best of the Best Award. STP has also led all 33 two unit nuclear power plants in the U.S. in production for seven consecutive years. The plant's three-year net capacity factor of 98.87% leads all U.S. nuclear plants, and is more than 8% ahead of the industry average.
NRG continues to believe that nuclear has an important place as a safe and reliable solution to supply America with clean baseload electricity. Nuclear is the only power generation technology that can move the needle enough to make the needed impact in the fight against climate change.
