Clean energy plus relatively low prices put natural gas in demand.
Clean burning natural gas has become an attractive fuel for serving increased demand, and the fuel most often used to replace older, retiring coal generation plants.
A majority of Exelon Generation’s fossil portfolio is clean burning natural gas. This includes several combined-cycle natural gas turbines (CCGT’s). Since 2001, our fossil portfolio reduced greenhouse gas generation emissions by more than 5.8 million metric tons.
Exelon Generation is also expanding our gas fleet through development. A 120 MW simple-cycle natural gas unit is now in operation in Maryland. Exelon Generation is building two 1,000 MW CCGT units in Texas at existing sites, using new General Electric technology that will make them among the cleanest, most efficient CCGTs in the state and the nation. Exelon Generation is also developing a 195 MW CCGT plant in Massachusetts.
Exelon is a good neighbor within our local communities.
We support local communities and causes with charitable giving and sponsorships – typically driven by our employees. We encourage our employees to volunteer and give back to their communities. Exelon works to advance many important causes, including the environment, education, the arts and appreciation of diversity.

Exelon Generation’s culture and business practice make us safety-first.
All Exelon Generation facilities employ sophisticated emergency response plans to protect public health and safety. Plans are reviewed and approved by state governments and federal regulatory agencies. Emergency planning includes coordination with local and municipal officials, and thousands of volunteers and first responders.
To protect the safety and health of our employees, contractors, customers and communities, we’ve implemented a number of initiatives to promote safe behaviors both on and off the job.
Exelon has a safety behavior observation program and focused initiatives. We offer safety training, which is integrated with leadership development programs for supervisors and managers, as well as new employee orientation. And the safety peer group identifies successful pilot programs or new practices that can then be adopted by the entire organization.
