— Exelon employees from across the company, including utility lineworkers, customer service representatives, power plant workers and more, joined today to ring The Opening Bell® at the New York Stock Exchange to commemorate the company’s status as a Fortune 100 company. Exelon President and CEO Chris Crane joined the group of 10 employees on the bell podium.
Exelon was named to the Fortune 100 earlier this year based on 2015 revenue gains, following strong growth across its business and a commitment to investing in clean energy and next-generation energy grid technology.
“This is an important milestone in Exelon’s history and a reflection of our employees’ strong commitment to delivering continued growth,” Crane said. “As the only Fortune 100 company in our sector, we serve more utility customers and produce more zero-carbon energy than any other company nationwide. We are uniquely positioned to lead the transition to a clean energy future by continuing to invest in technology and innovations that benefit our customers and communities.”
Since being named to the Fortune 100, Exelon has continued to grow. The company completed its merger with Pepco Holdings in March and is investing $25 billion on critical infrastructure, smart grid technology and other customer service improvements to benefit the 10 million electric and gas customers across Exelon’s six utilities.
Exelon also is leading the transition to a clean energy future by advocating for policies and market reforms that support zero-carbon energy, including nuclear, solar, wind, hydro, battery storage and other clean technologies. Exelon is also fostering a culture of innovation and partnering with top universities, national labs, government agencies, venture capitalists and private equity firms to unleash new technology that has the potential to transform the industry, spur clean energy options and provide greater benefits to customers.
