Natural Gas & Oil

​Clean natural gas is the primary, preferred fuel source to run our dual fuel (natural gas and oil) electricity generation units. But pricing changes and fuel availability can cause a power-supply shortfall. That’s when dual-fuel units are valuable. Exelon produces 1,592 MW (megawatts) of energy this way. Just one MW sustains 1,000 homes for an hour.
Natural gas supplies and weather are both unpredictable.

When there’s a cold snap – or worse, weather effects from the polar vortex – natural gas supply may not always be up to the demand. Natural gas supplies will generally first be allocated to heating homes and businesses. Exelon Generation may then exercise the option to switch to fuel oil to meet our commitments to operate when promised.

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 on areas of high risk. 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.
