Natural Gas

Meeting Increased Energy Demand

More electricity is being produced by natural gas in the U.S. than ever before.  Emitting less than half of the carbon emissions of coal when burned, natural gas is serving to meet America’s increased energy demand.

Cleaner burning natural gas has become an attractive fuel for serving increased demand. It’s the fuel most often used to replace older, retiring coal generation plants.

Several of Constellation’s clean-burning natural gas facilities include combined-cycle gas and steam turbines that are highly efficient and have low carbon emission rates.

We support local communities and causes with charitable giving and sponsorships—typically driven by our employees. Constellation contributed $5.6 million to 709 organizations in 2020, and our employees donated an additional $5.2 million and committed 52,885 volunteer hours across 34 states.

All Generation facilities employ sophisticated emergency response plans to protect public health and safety. Plans are reviewed and approved by state governments and federal regulatory agencies. Emergency planning includes coordination with local and municipal officials, as well as thousands of volunteers and first responders.

To protect the safety and health of our employees, contractors, customers, and communities, we have implemented a number of initiatives to promote safe behaviors both on and off the job. These include a safety behavior observation program and focused initiatives. We also offer safety training, which is integrated with leadership development programs for supervisors and managers, as well as new employee orientation. A safety peer group identifies successful pilot programs or new practices that can then be adopted by the entire organization.
