Exelon Utilities Receive Energy Star® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award

Exelon energy companies BGE, ComEd, Delmarva Power, PECO and Pepco honored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for environmental leadership

​​CHICAGO — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has presented Exelon’s energy companies BGE, ComEd, Delmarva Power, PECO and Pepco with the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year: Sustained Excellence Award. The Sustained Excellence Award is given to companies that demonstrate exceptional leadership for more than three years in the ENERGY STAR program, while committing to superior energy efficiency achievements. 

“An essential part of powering a cleaner and brighter future for our customers is giving them the tools to be more efficient energy consumers,” said Exelon CEO Christopher M. Crane. “Our six electric and gas companies do this every day through a suite of programs that help customers save energy and money.”

Through their energy efficiency programs, Exelon’s electric customers saved more than 19.2 million megawatt hours of energy in 2017, enough to power to approximately 1 million average American homes for one year. Customers also avoided almost 8.7 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.

“The 2018 ENERGY STAR Partners of the Year have demonstrated real leadership, showing how American families and businesses can save energy, save money, and reduce air emissions,” said Bill Wehrum, EPA assistant administrator for Air and Radiation.

BGE has been honored by the EPA for its efficiency 14 times, ComEd nine times, Delmarva Power four times, PECO nine times and Pepco five times. Exelon’s Atlantic City Electric is not eligible for this honor because its programs are run in partnership with the state of New Jersey.
