Independent power producer asserts it will make goals despite having large fleet of coal-powered plants

NRG Energy is committing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2030 and 90 percent by 2050, an ambitious goal for the nation’s largest independent power producer, particularly one with a fleet of up to 20 coal-fired plants.

David Crane, NRG’s chief executive officer, announced the target when the Princeton company broke ground for a new corporate headquarters, essentially across the street from its current offices in Carnegie Center off Route 1.
