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.

In a press release announcing the separation, Constellation said it is exploring growth opportunities that build on its core businesses and capitalise on the expanding demand for carbon-free energy, including potential acquisition of nuclear plants or other clean energy assets, creating clean hydrogen using its nuclear fleet, and introducing new products and services for business customers.
