Company operates largest nuclear fleet in country The company owns and operates 21 nuclear reactors and has an operating interest in Salem-1 and Salem-2. Constellation, formerly Exelon Generation, owner and operator of America’s largest commercial nuclear reactor fleet, announced the completion of its separation from Exelon Corporation and its launch as a standalone, publicly traded company.

The new company, based in Baltimore, Maryland, began trading this week on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol “CEG.”

Exelon announced last February that it had begun work to separate its utility businesses from its competitive power generation and customer-facing energy businesses.
