CHICAGO – As the largest producer of clean energy in the nation and the largest utility company by customer count, Exelon has a long record of advocating for ambitious policies to address the urgent climate crisis. Following President Biden’s announcement of a Build Back Better framework and as COP26 commences in Glasgow, Chris Crane, president and CEO of Exelon, issued the following statement:
“As world leaders convene in Glasgow for COP26 to address the climate crisis, the need for America to take action has never been more urgent. The bipartisan infrastructure agreement and the policy framework for Build Back Better legislation will make us more competitive globally, spur innovation and support good-paying jobs, protect current and future generations from the worst impacts of climate change and cement America’s leadership on one of the most pressing challenges – and opportunities -- of our time. The time to act is now, and we encourage lawmakers to pass these critical policies into law.”
Passing both measures would represent the most consequential climate and clean energy legislation in the U.S. to date. To advance support for these policies, Exelon most recently joined with several coalitions, including climate NGO’s and the business community, in calling on Congress to act. Recent examples of calls-to-action can be found here and here.
