After Separating from Exelon (EXC), Constellation Plans to Spearhead Nation’s Transition to a Carbon-Free Future

Exelon (EXC) has just announced that Constellation — which is slated to separate from utility provider on February 1, 2022 — “is uniquely positioned to lead the nation’s response to the climate crisis as the largest carbon-free energy producer” in the country. EXC stock fell 0.07% before market open this morning.

Separation from Exelon

Following its separation from the publicly-traded Exelon, Constellation will become the biggest carbon-free energy producer and a leading supplier of energy products and services to residential and business customers in the nation. According to the firm, Constellation has the lowest carbon intensity of any major power producer in the U.S.

Constellation CEO Comments

“No other company is better positioned to accelerate our nation’s rapid transition to a carbon-free energy future, and that will be the primary focus of our strategy going forward,” Joseph Dominguez, incoming Constellation CEO, said in a news release. “Key state and federal policymakers and the scientific community all recognize that 24/7, zero-carbon nuclear energy must be part of the solution to the climate crisis.”

Constellation’s Business Strategies

Some of Constellation’s new business strategies include the following:

  • Commitment to a carbon-free future.
  • Maintaining an efficiently run nuclear energy fleet (currently better than industry averages).
  • Industry-leading customer business platforms serving “2 million residential, public sector and business customers – including three-fourths of Fortune 100 companies.”
  • A disciplined financial policy that maintains “investment grade credit ratings, continuing a track record of effective cost management with more than $1.1 billion in cost reductions since 2015 and strong stewardship of capital, with a $180 million dividend growing at 10 percent annually and 2022 EBITDA guidance of $2.35 billion to $2.75 billion.”
