Exelon Corp. is the parent company of two major utilities, Commonwealth Edison in Chicago and PECO Energy in Philadelphia. Exelon is one of the nation’s largest utilities, with more than $14 billion in annual revenues, distributing electricity to approximately 5.2 million customers in Illinois and Pennsylvania, and gas to 460,000 customers in the Philadelphia area.
