Generating More Low-Carbon Electricity
Exelon Wind was developed as part of our efforts to provide more low-carbon electricity in the marketplace through our environmental and business strategy: Exelon 2020. A division of Exelon Power, Exelon Wind has wind projects in 10 states.
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.
Supporting the Local Economy
Exelon Wind pays local real estate taxes totaling about $6.2 million every year to support county and township government, area schools, libraries, park districts and other taxing bodies where our plants are located.
