Prioritizing energy efficiency
Exelon helps customers conserve and be good environmental stewards too.
Exelon’s utilities help customers save energy and reduce their monthly bills through energy efficiency, real-time pricing and demand response programs. These tools allow customers to make smart energy choices to make their homes and businesses more efficient. Using less energy benefits the environment and reduces the need for new power plants.
Exelon utilities offer some of the nation’s largest energy efficiency programs.
In 2021, through a combination of new and prior-year investments, our Exelon utilities helped customers save 22 million MWh of energy through ComEd
Smart Ideas® programs, PECO Energy Efficiency programs, BGE Smart Energy
Savers Program® and PHI Home Energy Savings Program®. This equates to more than 8.7 million metric tons of CO2e emissions avoided, the equivalent of over one million homes’ energy use for one year or the carbon sequestered by 10.4 million acres of U.S. forest in one year.
