NRG has deployed a mobile power support vehicle, Power2Serve, to come to the aid of Texans who were affected by the more than 35 trillion gallons of rain that fell in May.
NRG’s mobile power support vehicle, Power2Serve, has deployed to Wimberley and is set up to provide power and connectivity to Team Rubicon, a non-profit disaster relief organization of veterans, first responders and civilians coordinating clean-up, debris removal and volunteer management in Hays and Caldwell counties.
NRG’s Power2Serve vehicle provides hands-on support when disasters strike. Power2Serve is a 26-foot long truck, equipped with solar and diesel generators and a custom canopy, dispatched to locations in need of support. The NRG Power2Serve team:
- Creates a transportable, climate-controlled pavilion where emergency personnel can gather to charge electronics, access Wi-Fi, stay up-to-date on news and more.
- Brings 40 kW of diesel and solar electric generators to power operations, lighting in the pavilion and a heavy extension cord to emergency management centers.
In addition, Reliant, an NRG company, is donating $100,000 to support the American Red Cross’ ongoing disaster relief and emotional counseling efforts.
“Our hearts go out to those communities struggling to return to a semblance of normal life at this challenging time,” said Elizabeth Killinger, president of NRG Retail and Reliant. “Our donation will support the American Red Cross as it continues to provide shelter, clothing and food to those in need across Texas. Deploying Power2Serve to assist Team Rubicon in Wimberley’s recovery effort is another way we are helping those who have been most affected.”
