NRG Energy Inc., the largest independent U.S. power producer, completed a 20-megawatt solar farm in California that supplies power for Cisco Systems Inc.’s headquarters.

The Blythe II solar farm in the Sonoran Desert has a 20-year power purchase agreement with Cisco, Princeton, New Jersey-based NRG said in a statement Thursday. Cisco will also get all of Blythe II’s renewable energy credits. Terms weren’t disclosed.
