Exelon Utilities is leading by example when it comes to electrifying our transportation system. In this episode of Grid Talk, Exelon Utilities CEO, Calvin Butler, talks about serving customers with affordable electricity, while transitioning to a clean energy future.  

“Electrification of the transportation industry is one of the biggest things that we can do to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to help our environment,” said Butler.

With more and more people, companies, and government agencies adopting electric vehicles, Exelon Utilities is working to build the infrastructure to ensure the reliability of the grid.

“It’s not only charging your iPads and your lights in your home; it’s also charging your vehicle, so you can get to work the next day.”

Calvin G. Butler Jr. has been the CEO at Exelon Utilities since 2019. Mr. Butler oversees Exelon’s six local electric and natural gas companies in New Jersey, Maryland, Illinois, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia. He previously served as CEO of Baltimore Gas and Energy from 2014 to 2019. 

Mr. Butler earned a bachelor’s degree from Bradley University and a Juris Doctor degree from Washington University School of Law. He received an honorary doctorate of Humane Letters from Morgan State University in 2014.
