BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Agera Energy and its affiliates have filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York and is facilitating an asset sale to Constellation, a subsidiary of Exelon Corporation (Nasdaq: EXC), subject to bankruptcy court approval. If approved by the bankruptcy court, the majority of Agera’s existing customers will be transferred to Constellation upon completion of the sale.
