Products

Products and solutions to meet your energy needs.

Understand your facility usage and utility bills.

Analytics platforms such as Pear.ai can help you manage carbon emissions data associated with your utilities, including energy, water, sewer, and diesel. Use it to generate valuable insights, such as baseline energy usage data and how energy efficiency upgrades and other options can reduce emissions.

Make energy efficiency upgrades

Energy efficiency upgrades, such as LED lighting and HVAC upgrades, can help reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. With Constellation’s Efficiency Made Easy® (EME) program, you can implement those infrastructure improvements with no upfront capital.

Purchase EFECS and RECS

Emission-Free Energy Certificates (EFECs) represent the emission-free attributes of generating sources that do not emit greenhouse gases, such as solar, wind, nuclear and hydropower. At today’s prices, these are the most cost-effective certificates available. Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) represent the emission-free attributes of one megawatt hour (MWh) of electricity generated only by renewable power plants, such as from wind or solar power.

Explore renewable natural gas

Directly reduce greenhouse gas emissions resulting from natural gas consumption by matching your gas purchases with environmental attributes of renewable natural gas (RNG), derived from sources including landfills, wastewater treatment plants and commercial & agricultural waste digesters.

Leverage carbon offsets

Indirectly reduce such emissions through the purchase of carbon offsets, which represent a verified reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gas emissions made elsewhere through forestry, energy efficiency, industrial process improvements and carbon capture & sequestration projects.

Procure offsite renewables

Through Constellation Offsite Renewables solutions, you have the ability to go beyond purchasing certificates and integrate energy from specific renewable energy projects in your region. Purchase renewable energy from existing (CORe) or new-build (CORe+) generation, including solar and wind facilities, into load-following energy supply.

Pursue Hourly Carbon-Free Energy Matching of clean electricity with your load

By matching your electricity use with a local emission-free energy source in real time, you can go beyond other net-zero programs to allow you to eliminate the carbon impact of your operations and fully achieve zero emissions goals.

The Future of Manufacturing and AI Randy Wolken, President & CEO...

The Future of Manufacturing and AI Randy Wolken, President & CEO The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) recently released its first-of-a-kind report on how artificial intelligence (AI) allows manufacturers to work smarter and more efficiently. The report, “Working Smarter: How Manufacturers Are Using Artificial Intelligence,” details multiple use cases for AI in manufacturing and specific case studies on how manufacturers are already implementing AI technologies. AI can strengthen the workforce, increase innovation, and improve workers’ overall quality of life. The report does an excellent job of outlining the key components of AI in manufacturing. Below is a useful graphic that connects AI, machine learning, deep learning, and generative AI. AI is increasingly infused throughout the shop floor to enhance R&D....

A New Podcast David Freund, Chief Leadership Officer Just about two years ago, Marisa Norcross and I recorded our last episode of The Next Page podcast.

Instead of a weekly episode, we will release two episodes per month. I am thrilled to share with you that once a month I will be joined by Marisa, MACNY’s Chief Operations Officer, to discuss three topics: life, learning, and leadership....

Can You Be Zero? Randy Wolken, President & CEO As a...

Can You Be Zero? Randy Wolken, President & CEO As a leader, are you willing to be zero? When you are in a conversation, can you just be completely present and listen fully and without any intent to contribute to the effort at that moment? Leaders have a tough time doing that. A vital leadership concept involves determining when to add something, just be there, or subtract something (+, 0, -). As leaders, we usually have been trained to add value. We have been rewarded for “making a difference,” “taking the lead,” and “having the answers.” This is the addition (+) we get paid for, and rightfully so. However, if we always try to add to the situation – does...

Is It Missing? David Freund, Chief Leadership Officer As I write this, I am flying to the West Coast to attend meetings for the Faith Community that I am a part of. For two days, senior pastors meet to discuss a variety of topics and challenges facing our churches. I have been asked once again to start our meeting off with a leadership topic. As I thought about my assignment for the last few months, an often-overlooked aspect of leadership kept coming to mind: passion. Yes, I will endeavor to speak with pastors about passion. If you feel like you are struggling with the passion question, let me help you out. I discovered a formula that, if followed, will fill...
