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.
