Constellation Teams Up with Houston Habitat for Humanity to Help Build Affordable Homes

Over two days, 40 Constellation volunteers roll up their sleeves to help build new single-family homes for community members in need

HOUSTON (Oct. 19, 2023) — Employee volunteers from Constellation (Nasdaq: CEG), the nation’s largest producer of carbon-free energy, joined forces with Houston Habitat for Humanity this week to construct affordable, single-family homes in the Houston community.

Working in the city’s Clinton Park neighborhood, about 40 Constellation volunteers — alongside Habitat staff and future homeowners — built the exterior, or “shell,” of a house for a low-income family. The team stood up walls, installed exterior wood sheathing, cut windows and doors, installed porch beams and more.  

“Constellation is dedicated to the communities where we live, work and serve, and our 550 Texas employees exemplify that commitment, both through our volunteer service here in Houston this week and all-year round,” said David Donat, President and CEO of Constellation Home, the company’s home services business. “We’re proud to provide Texans with reliable power to the grid and customized retail energy services, and we look forward to continuing our support for local charities, families and businesses in Texas communities.”

Since 2010, Constellation has provided more than $670,000 in philanthropic support and mobilized hundreds of employee volunteers to help Houston Habitat for Humanity build safe, affordable and energy-efficient homes. The company is also active with local Habitat for Humanity organizations throughout Texas. These efforts have taken on increased importance as the cost of homeownership nationwide continues to rise.

This week’s build is part of the Harris County Homeownership Collaborative, an initiative launched in 2022 to help close the homeownership gap for Black and Hispanic families and other underserved residents.

“We greatly value our partnership with Constellation, which has been supporting our work since 2010,” said Allison Hay, Chief Executive Officer of Houston Habitat. “Their commitment to community and their enthusiastic employee volunteers embody the profound impact businesses can have on affordable housing. Together, we are building homes, hope and brighter futures for Houstonians.”

Constellation, which recently announced it will acquire an entity that owns part of the South Texas Project nuclear station, operates the nation’s largest nuclear energy fleet and has a strong and growing presence in Texas as an employer, taxpayer and significant provider of electricity and other services to the region. The company owns and operates 3,520 megawatts of natural gas-fired generation at its Colorado Bend II, Wolf Hollow II and Handley generating stations in Texas, in addition to 169 megawatts of wind energy at the Whitetail and Sendero wind projects. Constellation also is a supplier in Texas’ competitive retail energy market, supplying electricity, natural gas, energy efficiency and other services to approximately 200,000 residential and commercial customers statewide.

The company and its more than 550 Texas employees donated $460,000 to nonprofit organizations across the state in 2022 and contributed 4,800 volunteer hours. Constellation also paid $33.6 million in state and local taxes in Texas last year.
