Exelon Corp. announced Monday that it is listed on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the 10th consecutive year.  

Exelon said it saw improvements in the area of sustainability with the addition of 215 megawatts of zero-emission generation through new wind, solar and nuclear energy enhancements. The completion of the Antelope Valley Solar Ranch in California and its $3.1 billion in utility infrastructure investments are among the sustainability goals achieved in 2014.

“The Dow Jones Sustainability Index is one of the most widely recognized and trusted indicators of companies’ sustainability performance,” Exelon President and CEO Chris Crane said. “We are proud to have been named to the index every year for the last decade. This validates our consistent effort to run our businesses in a way that takes into account the long-term needs of our customers, communities and employees.”

Exelon is among seven companies operating in the gas and electric industries to make the list. Exelon said that approximately 600 companies were considered for the list.

Across its generating fleet, Exelon has a electrical generation capacity of approximately 32,000 megawatts. The company serves 48 states, the D.C. area and portions of Canada. The company reports that employees logged approximately 113,000 hours in volunteer work.
