Exelon Corporation was created as the result of a merger between PECO Energy Company and the Unicom Corporation in October 2000.

Exelon Corporation was formed from the 2000 merger of PECO Energy Company and Unicom Corporation.

Then, in March 2002, co-CEO McNeill announced his resignation amid rumors that he was unable to see eye-to-eye with Rowe on the expansion direction of the company.
On June 30, 2005, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved the merger of Exelon and Public Service Enterprise Group Inc., a New Jersey utility.
In 2008, Christopher Crane was named CEO following Rowe's retirement and the completion of the merger with Constellation Energy.
Exelon announced the proposed purchase of Pepco Holdings, Inc on April 30, 2014, for $6.8 billion in an all-cash transaction.
The merger was rejected by the District of Columbia Public Service Commission in August 2015, though it was approved by other federal and state regulators.
In 2015, Earth Quaker Action Team began a campaign to pressure PECO to expand the solar power it purchases, and to purchase it locally to create jobs.
