Exelon Contributes $250,000 to Disaster Relief Efforts in Puerto Rico and Mexico

Exelon and its utilities donate $250,000 to the American Red Cross and other nonprofits, directing funds to areas affected by Hurricane Maria and earthquakes in Mexico

CHICAGO — In response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria and two earthquakes in Mexico, Exelon has donated $50,000 to the American Red Cross to assist in disaster relief areas. The largest utility by customer count, Exelon, through its operating companies, is contributing another $200,000 to organizations aiding in relief efforts.

Combined with donations following Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, Exelon has contributed $820,000 to support affected areas. The amount includes donations from company employees, who have contributed $160,000, matched dollar for dollar by the Exelon Foundation’s Matching Gifts Program. Employee volunteers have also traveled to Houston to help rebuild homes. More than 2,000 crews and contractors from Exelon’s utilities recently returned home after joining mutual assistance efforts to restore power to customers in Florida after Hurricane Irma.

“We are dedicating significant resources to the recovery of these regions devastated by recent natural disasters,” said Chris Crane, Exelon president and CEO. “Exelon and our people will continue to offer our support for these long-term recovery efforts.”

For power restoration efforts in Puerto Rico, the American Public Power Association (APPA) is working with the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority to determine what operational resources are required. The current focus of all activity on Puerto Rico is centered on life safety operations and stabilizing the situation so that damage assessments and recovery can progress. The Edison Electric Institute and Exelon utilities are closely coordinating with authorities to assist as needed when damage assessments and conditions on the ground permit restoration.
