Exelon Statement on U.S. Supreme Court Decision Upholding State Programs Designed to Preserve Nuclear Energy

CHICAGO — Exelon Corporation issued the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to reject appeals challenging Zero Emissions Credit programs in Illinois and New York:

“Today our nation’s highest court let stand two appellate court decisions affirming that states have a right to protect their citizens by favoring clean energy -- including nuclear -- over pollution-emitting energy from coal, oil and natural gas power plants. This decision is a win for consumers, policymakers and regulators in states that choose to support the continued operation of nuclear plants as part of efforts to reduce carbon emissions and address the effects of climate change.”
