It is a 3-unit, 1,265 megawatt natural gas-fueled electric generation facility located in Fort Worth, Texas that provides electricity to customers in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) when needed. </div><div class="copy-section"><p>Handley dates back to 1902, when the Northern Texas Traction Company built a generating plant, the largest in the area, along the adjacent Lake Erie. When Unit 1 was built, it was the first outdoor steam electric fossil power plant of its type in the industry. Now known as Lake Arlington, the lake serves as a popular recreation and amusement area for the local community.</p></div><div class="grouper"><div class="row"><div class="grouper-section"> </div><div class="section-header"><h4>Exelon Generation's culture and business practice make us safety-first​</h4></div><div class="grouper-content"><div class="cta-generic"><p>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. </p><p>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. </p><p>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.
