Exelon Generation recently invested millions into its FitzPatrick facility located near Scriba, NY. With so much poured into the location, Exelon also made it clear that they were looking to provide opportunities for “minority, women and veteran-owned suppliers” to boost economic growth in the surrounding area. Accordingly, FitzPatrick launched “several capital projects in 2017 totaling more than $15.2 million to realign the station for long-term operations.” Of the $15.2 million, around 30% of the larger projects were performed by diverse suppliers.
“In 2017, we promised to invest more than $400 million across our New York plants through refueling and integration expenditures, and we did,” said Exelon Senior Vice President of Northeast Operations Chris Mudrick. “As part of this investment, we partnered with several New York and minority- and women-owned businesses to benefit the community while making FitzPatrick a first-class facility that could continue providing clean energy to New York for years to come.”
This commitment towards supplier diversity is nothing new for Exelon Generation as its parent company Exelon Corporation spent close to $2 billion with diverse suppliers in 2016. As we move into 2018, if you’re a diverse company looking for new opportunities you may want to connect with Exelon Corporation and its subsidiaries.
