A growing portfolio of natural gas generation

Exelon Generation, through its subsidiary Exelon Power, owns and operates a fossil generation portfolio of more than 11,000 megawatts (MW) that consists of baseload, intermediate and peaking stations, located in eight states and in Canada.

Natural Gas Investment

A majority of Exelon’s fossil portfolio is fueled by clean burning natural gas, which includes several combined-cycle natural gas turbines (CCGT’s). Exelon is also expanding our gas fleet through development. A 120 MW simple-cycle natural gas unit is currently under construction in Maryland and Exelon is planning to build two 1,000 MW CCGT units in Texas at existing Exelon Generation sites, using a new General Electric technology that will make them among the cleanest, most efficient CCGTs in the state and the nation.

Coal Investment

Exelon has sold or retired most of its coal plants and now only has partial ownership interest in two western Pennsylvania coal plants and partial ownership of two small waste coal facilities, one in Pennsylvania and one in Utah.  The plant in Utah is operated by Exelon.  Both western Pennsylvania coal plants are equipped with systems for SO2 removal and NOx reduction.

Safety and Performance

All Exelon facilities employ sophisticated emergency response plans to protect public health and safety. These plans are reviewed and approved by state governments and regulatory agencies. The emergency planning includes coordination with local counties, municipalities and school districts.

Exelon continues to pursue improvements in the efficiency and thermal performance of our fossil generating plants

  • In 2013, Exelon's fossil units were available 99% of the time the market demanded them, achiving a 99% Disptach Match rate.   
  • Since 2001, we have reduced fossil generation emissions by more than 5.8 million metric tons.   Most of our Exelon 2020 greenhouse gas reductions were achieved by focusing on opportunities within Exelon’s own operations, including retiring or “mothballing” less efficient and higher-emitting fossil fuel power plants in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Texas.

Fossil Power Plants

Exelon Power is responsbile for operating Exelon Generation's fleet of fossil (natural gas, oil, coal) generating assets which are located in eight states and in Canada.  Exelon Power is headquartered in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.
