Exelon is one of Maryland’s largest employers and remains one of its top contributors to charitable and economic development organizations providing support to communities across the state. After merging with Constellation Energy in 2012, Exelon expanded its presence in the state with the addition of Constellation, BGE and BGE Home.
Exelon employs approximately 7,000 people in Maryland. Exelon’s Maryland companies contributed more than $440 million to the state via tax payments in 2012. Exelon Generation has also expanded its fleet with the addition of nine fossil power plants, and Maryland’s first wind energy project. Through Constellation’s nuclear joint venture with EDF Group (CENG), we now own a 50.01% share of the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Plant, which operates two nuclear units in Lusby, Md.
BGE safely and reliably delivers electricity to more than 1.2 million customers and natural gas to more than 655,000 customers in central Maryland.
BGE HOME is one of the largest energy service providers to residential customers in central Maryland. It provides a full spectrum of heating, air conditioning, appliance, efficiency and home improvement products and services.
Constellation is a leading supplier of electricity and natural gas to residential and business customers coast-to-coast, including about two-thirds of the companies listed on the Fortune 100 index. Headquartered in Baltimore, Constellation is a leading provider of innovative energy products and services aimed at helping businesses make more efficient use of energy.
Exelon is working to minimize the Conowingo plant’s impact on wildlife. The hydro plant currently operates two fish lifts. The west lift, adjacent to the right abutment, is currently operated under an agreement with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) for American shad egg production and other research purposes. The newer east lift, which uses regulating gate bays for attraction flow, is used primarily to pass American shad and other migratory fishes during the April – June migration season.
In spring 2012, BGE began a three-year project to change the electric meters and upgrade the gas meters for all BGE residential and small commercial customers. Smart meters are digital meters that allow two-way communication with BGE through a wireless network. With the installation of smart meters, new features and programs are becoming available to customers, including online usage tracking, tips for cutting down on energy use and opportunities to earn bill credits for using less energy during peak periods.
As a part of Exelon’s retail business, Constellation continues to invest in renewable energy, including a 16.1 megawatt solar facility for the state of Maryland. Constellation’s commitment to community organizations and efforts that advance energy solutions, education, the environment and economic development continues to be a featured component of its corporate giving and employee volunteer efforts. Since 2010, Constellation’s E2 Energy to Educate Grants program has provided nearly $1.5 million in funding for student projects that have enhanced the understanding of energy-related science and technology issues for an estimated 81,000 students.
Exelon and Constellation have committed to an average of $7 million per year in charitable giving in Maryland. Beyond volunteerism at the employee level, Exelon’s power plants also sponsor community-wide charities. During the year the staff provide service time at New Hope Mission, Plumpton Zoo, Conowingo River Clean-up, Lower Susquehanna River Sweep, Port Deposit Annul Shad Festival and other community organizations.
In 2013, Constellation contributed more than $2.5 million to Maryland charitable organizations, and employees reported more than 6,000 volunteer hours. Also in 2012, Exelon and Constellation made a combined $1.8 million donation to the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore for a state-of-the-art exhibit on energy.
In 2012, BGE contributed approximately $1.3 million to Maryland organizations that address economic development, public safety, civic issues and other initiatives. Employees logged more than 18,000 volunteer hours.
