Wolf Hollow went in to commercial operation in 2003. It is equipped with two Mitsubishi natural gas fueled combined-cycle turbines and serves customers in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). Exelon purchased the facility in 2011.
Generating More Low-Carbon Electricity
The acquisition of Wolf Hollow in 2011 builds on Exelon’s plans to invest nearly $5 billion in cost-effective, clean energy projects over six years, as part of the company’s Exelon 2020 strategy to eliminate the equivalent of its 2001 carbon footprint.
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
Wolf Hollow Generating Station pays local real estate taxes totaling about $1.9 million every year to support county and township government, area schools, libraries, park districts and other taxing bodies.
