CHICAGO -- April 22, 2013

Thousands of employees from across the Exelon family of companies are
observing National Volunteer Week (April 21-27) by participating in more than
150 volunteer service projects in the communities Exelon serves.

National Volunteer Week is an annual, nationwide celebration of people working
to improve their communities through service. For the seventh consecutive
year, Exelon employees have organized community service projects in which more
than 2,000 employees, family members and friends are expected to participate

“Our employees’ commitment to the communities they serve goes beyond the work
they do at their offices and worksites, or in the field,” said Christopher M.
Crane, Exelon’s president and CEO. “They volunteer their time and energy to
causes and organizations they care about to make our communities better places
to live and work. I am proud of our employee volunteers for their leadership
and dedication, not just this week, but year-round.”

The volunteer projects support Exelon’s corporate citizenship focus areas of
education, diversity and inclusion, community enrichment and environmental
stewardship. In recognition of Earth Day (April 22) and Exelon’s commitment to
sustainability, many of the projects focus on environmental cleanup or
conservation, and support Exelon 2020, the company’s program to eliminate the
equivalent of its annual carbon footprint by 2020.

The National Volunteer Week projects include employee volunteers from all of
Exelon’s businesses, including ComEd in northern Illinois, PECO in
southeastern Pennsylvania, Constellation and BGE in Maryland, and Exelon
Generation and Exelon Business Services Company in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic
and Texas.

Exelon has a longstanding tradition of charitable giving and service to civic
and nonprofit organizations through its “Energy for the Community” program. In
2012, Exelon employees recorded nearly 105,000 volunteer hours with community
nonprofits – the equivalent of 2,625 workweeks or 50 years of full-time
service.

to design their volunteer service projects. Examples of Exelon’s National
