Exelon Corp. CEO Chris Crane said Thursday that three of its plants in the state are “financially challenged” and that the company is working with lawmakers to ensure nuclear power is included in any legislation that supports clean energy.

“We will not operate unprofitable or negative cash-flow plants,” Crane told analysts Thursday on the Chicago-based company’s second-quarter earnings call. He singled out the Braidwood, Byron and Dresden plants.
