Exelon is a FORTUNE 100 company that operates across the energy value chain. We strive to power a cleaner and brighter future for our customers and communities.
As the largest electricity provider in the USA by customer count and by far the largest producer of zero-carbon energy, Exelon is positioned to lead the transformation of how we access and use energy and invest in the deployment of the next-generation of clean, diverse energy technologies to bring about the changes we need to prevent the worst effects of climate change.
Since the company’s formation in 2000, we have completely retired or divested all coal generation from our portfolio. During this same period, we lowered our direct GHG emissions by 37 percent, while dramatically growing our business. We are on track to meet our most recent goal of reducing internal GHG emissions by an additional 15 percent by 2022.
Exelon’s six electric and gas companies are working in their communities to deploy smart grid technology, electric vehicle infrastructure and tools to help customers use energy more efficiently. In 2018, our energy efficiency programs saved customers 21.9 million megawatt hours of electricity and avoided 9.9 million metric tons of GHG emissions – the equivalent of taking 2.1 million cars off the road for a year.
Exelon stands with the overwhelming majority of our customers who want cleaner air and affordable, reliable energy. We believe confronting climate change in our communities is one of the single greatest things we can do to help them remain strong, safe and prosperous.
