|Exelon Corporation, a public utility holding company, operates through its principal subsidiaries- ComEd, PECO and Generation. In 2004, Exelon identified three operating segments- Energy Delivery, Generation and Enterprises. Exelon was incorporated in Pennsylvania in February 1999. ComEd's energy delivery business consists of the purchase and regulated sale of electricity and distribution and transmission services to retail and wholesale customers in northern Illinois, including the City of Chicago. PECO's energy delivery business consists of the purchase and regulated sale of electricity and distribution and transmission services to retail customers in southeastern Pennsylvania, including the City of Philadelphia, and the purchase and regulated sale of natural gas and distribution services to retail customers in the Pennsylvania counties surrounding the City of Philadelphia. Exelon's generation business consists of the owned and contracted-for electric generating facilities and energy marketing operations of Generation, a 49.5% interest in two power stations in Mexico and the competitive retail sales business of Exelon Energy Company. ComEd is engaged principally in the purchase, transmission, distribution and sale of electricity to a diverse base of residential, commercial, industrial and wholesale customers in northern Illinois. PECO is engaged principally in the purchase, transmission, distribution and sale of electricity to residential, commercial and industrial customers in southeastern Pennsylvania and the purchase, distribution and sale of natural gas to residential, commercial and industrial customers in the Pennsylvania counties surrounding the City of Philadelphia. ComEd and PECO provide wholesale and unbundled retail transmission service under rates established by the FERC. The FERC has used its regulation of transmission to encourage competition for wholesale generation services and the development of regional structures to facilitate regional wholesale markets. Generation combines its large generation fleet with an experienced wholesale power marketing operation and the competitive retail sales business of Exelon Energy, which became part of Generation effective as of January 1, 2004. Generation's wholesale marketing unit, Power Team, a major wholesale marketer of energy, uses Generation's energy generation portfolio, transmission rights and expertise to ensure delivery of energy to Generation's wholesale customers under long-term and short-term contracts, including the load requirements of ComEd and PECO. In addition, Power Team markets energy in the wholesale bilateral and spot markets. Generation operates various fossil and hydroelectric facilities and maintains ownership interest in several other facilities such as LaPorte, Keystone, Conemaugh and Wyman, which are operated by third parties. Exelon Energy provides retail electric and gas services as an unregulated retail energy supplier in Illinois, Michigan and Ohio. The Company's energy business is dependent upon continued deregulation of retail electric and gas markets and its ability to obtain supplies of electricity and gas at competitive prices in the wholesale market.|
