After losing PNM Resources and PG&E. in the wake of what can charitably be described as its antics, the Chamber this morning shed another member: in a speech to the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy today, John Rowe, president of Exelon Corp., which delivers power more than 5 million customers, announced that his group would not renew its membership. As Bloomberg News reports:
Exelon Corp., the biggest utilityowner by market value, said it will not renew its membership inthe U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Exelon Chief Executive Officer John Rowe spoke at a conference sponsored by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy in Chicago, where the company is based. Exelon chose to leave the Chamber because the business group doesn’tsupport federal climate-change legislation.For Bill Kovacs and the rest of gang at the Chamber of Commerce, it's going to be yet another sad song and pint of ice cream day.
