Ensuring Electric Generation Reliability

Our oil-fueled electric generation facilities provide a total capacity of 1,243 megawatts (MW) and are part of our Peaking Division, with units operating, as needed, during peak-demand periods and for load balancing.

Constellation always complies with strict government and environmental regulation – and we even work to exceed them. Our efforts include reducing the sulfur content in our fuels and our early adoption of emission control technology.

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’ve implemented a number of initiatives to promote safe behaviors both on and off the job. Among these are a safety behavior observation program and focused initiatives on areas of high risk. We offer safety training, which is integrated with leadership development programs for supervisors and managers, as well as new employee orientation. Finally, a the safety peer group identifies successful pilot programs or new practices that can then be adopted by the entire organization.
