Jobsite

Exelon’s history can be traced to Pennsylvania’s budding power industry which sprang up in the the late 1800s.  Multiple mergers and acquisitions of electric companies which occurred throughout the 19th and 20th centuries eventually culminated in the formation of Exelon in 1999.  The electric generation and distribution holding company currently owns several power plants in Pennsylvania among other states.

Address or general location

Multiple locations in Pennsylvania, including Phoenixville, Tacony and Eddystone, PA.
