Maryland energy regulators on Tuesday extended the deadline to Feb. 2 for public comment on Constellation Energy Group's plan to sell itself to Exelon Corp.

The initial public comment period closed Dec. 9, but Exelon agreed a week later to a settlement with the state and Gov. Martin O'Malley over the proposed merger.

As a result, the Maryland Office of People's Counsel, the consumer advocate in utility matters, said the public has not had an opportunity comment on that settlement and requested an extension for filing written comments.

The public can file comments to David J. Collins, Executive Secretary, Maryland Public Service Commission, William Donald Schaefer Tower, 6 St. Paul St., 16th Fl. Baltimore, MD 21202, and reference "Case No. 9271 – Public Comment."
