We diligently seek to manage our environmental impact by reducing our carbon emissions, exploring new green sources of energy and educating the public about conservation practices.
One of the most rewarding aspects of public education involves the work we accomplish with students. Located in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania, in the Keystone Industrial Port Complex, the Renewable Energy Education Center features a variety of interactive displays to spark students’ interest in how electricity is created using landfill gas, the sun, wind and water. At the education center, students are challenged to consider the cost of the various forms of electricity and to also consider energy-saving opportunities.
Constellation also works with its customers to reduce energy consumption and offers renewable and sustainable options including:
- Energy certificates
- Load response solutions
Exelon believes that enriching our communities is in everyone’s best interest. Exelon employees throughout Pennsylvania record more than 16,500 volunteer hours and the company provides over $9 million to charitable causes through grants each year. PECO contributes more than $5 million annually to non-profit organizations, events and programs in the areas of diversity, education, safety, the environment and arts and culture.
