Constellation Energy Receives 2007 Green Power Leadership Award

U.S. DOE recognizes the company's innovative green power program developed for the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission in Maryland

Serving nearly 1.8 million customers in Prince George's and Montgomery counties in Maryland, the WSSC requires an average of 25 megawatts (MW) of electricity daily for its operational needs. In addition to incorporating the most efficient demand-side technology and supply-side purchasing strategies into their energy portfolio, Constellation Energy's innovative approach included working with Edison Mission Group to build a 30 megawatt (MW) wind power project, which will provide 85 percent of its power to WSSC. These extensive efforts to help WSSC achieve both its financial and environmental goals via a comprehensive energy plan that leverages both demand-side technology and supply-side purchasing strategies were a driving factor for receipt of this prestigious award in the category of "New Green Power Program or Product."
