NRG Systems, Inc.

NRG Systems started making innovative, high-quality products for the wind industry in the early 1980s. As climate challenges became more numerous and complex, we expanded our offerings to include smart technologies for a range of wind, solar, and meteorological applications.

We believe that the need for more efficient energy, cleaner air, and a safer environment, is not bound by country or continent. That’s why we developed groundbreaking systems that allow us to ship our products to any project site, anywhere in the world. It’s also why our team is constantly on the move, zigzagging the globe to speak at conferences, meet with customers, and lead trainings and installations everywhere from Yangshuo to Saskatchewan. 

Whether we are in the field, at our desks, or at home, our team is driven by a common set of values and a unified vision – a world powered by sustainable resources. This is our purpose and it inspires everything we do, how we do it, and what we strive every day to help create. We support like-minded nonprofit organizations, champion climate change awareness through education and activism, and incentivize our employees to lessen their carbon footprints.

We work hard to maintain a work environment that celebrates integrity, advocacy, respect, and growth, so that our employees can feel good about coming to the office every day. We believe strongly in providing fair compensation, nurturing personal and professional growth, and sharing the benefits of our success. Over 40% of our employees have been with NRG for ten years or more – a testament to their passion and dedication to making NRG’s vision a reality.  

We are proud to be part of an industry intent on forging a more sustainable path. Together, our work will have profound and lasting impacts on the planet and its inhabitants not just today, but quite possibly forever.
