Oil

​A small percentage of our power generation - 1,281 megawatts - comes from using oil. These oil power plants are part of our peaking division and, in certain cases, fuel oil is also used as a back-up for some of Exelon Generation’s natural gas fired power facilities. Fuel oil for use in electricity generation is strictly regulated by both federal and state law.
Working to control air emissions.

Exelon always complies with strict government and environmental regulation – and we work to exceed them. We’ve reduced the sulfur content in our fuels. We are early adopters of emission control technology which are good for business and for the environment.

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.
