Exelon added nearly 500 MW of clean generating capacity in 2012 - including 404 MW in new wind projects, 31 MW in new solar and 63 MW in nuclear power uprates - according to a company report.

Exelon notes that its newly released 2012 Corporate Sustainability Report is the first complete and integrated record of the company's sustainability performance following the merger of Exelon and Constellation in March 2012.

Across all three of its utilities, Exelon says it also achieved its lowest average number of interruptions per customer over the last three years and best-ever customer satisfaction scores on the Exelon Customer Satisfaction Index.

Last year, Exelon says it reached a total internal energy use reduction of 30% from 2001 levels at legacy Exelon commercial buildings through efficiency and green building measures; achieved nearly 500,000 MWh of cumulative Constellation customer energy savings through efficiency efforts, renewable energy solutions and demand response tools; and achieved nearly 3.3 million MWh of cumulative energy savings through customer efficiency efforts.
