Exelon Statement on Pennsylvania Joining the U.S. Climate Alliance and Releasing its Climate Action Plan

PENNSYLVANIA — Exelon Corporation issued the following statement in response to Pennsylvania joining the U.S. Climate Alliance and releasing its Climate Action Plan:

“As the nation’s largest producer of emissions-free energy, Exelon commends Governor Wolf’s decision to join the U.S. Climate Alliance and set ambitious carbon reduction goals for the Commonwealth. We agree that any plan to address climate change must include the preservation of Pennsylvania’s five nuclear plants, which keep electricity costs stable for consumers and provide 93 percent of the state’s zero-carbon electricity. In fact, Three Mile Island Unit 1 alone produces more zero-carbon energy than all renewables in Pennsylvania.”
