Constellation Energy and Baltimore Ravens Team Up to Promote Environmental Education at Thanksgiving Day Game at M&T Bank Stadium
Constellation Promotes Renewable Energy and Home Electric Choice
Options for Fans
Constellation Energy (NYSE:CEG), one of the nation's leading competitive
energy suppliers, will put renewable energy behind the Baltimore Ravens
environmental stewardship drive on Nov. 24 by sponsoring the team's
first game focusing on energy conservation initiatives and education.
As a Proud Partner of the Ravens, Constellation Energy will retire
renewable energy certificates (RECs) that will cover the typical energy
usage during the Ravens Thanksgiving Day game at M&T Bank Stadium
against the San Francisco 49ers. The RECs will avoid approximately 30
metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions — the equivalent of more than
1,200 tailgaters with propane grills. RECs encourage the development of
wind, solar and other forms of renewable energy.
"Constellation Energy is excited to support the Ravens' environmental
commitment to recycling and energy efficiency," said Bruce Stewart,
chief marketing officer, Retail Energy, for Constellation Energy. "We
also invite all fans to take advantage of the clean energy options we
offer through our electricity choice and savings to Maryland business
and residential customers."
"We are excited to work with Constellation Energy and showcase our
energy conservation efforts to our fans during the Thanksgiving week,"
said Ed Burchell, vice president of Regional Partnerships & Sales for
the Baltimore Ravens. "We look forward to continuing to work with
Constellation Energy to make a positive difference in our community and
in our environment."
As a part of the Nov. 24 game, Constellation Energy and the Ravens have
developed an online Facebook contest for fans to test their football and
energy knowledge and win a game day package that includes a pair of
tickets and two pre-game hospitality passes to the Ravens final home
game on Christmas Eve. Details will be available next week on the
Constellation Energy Facebook page.
The Ravens and the Maryland Stadium Authority's environmental
initiatives at M&T Bank Stadium include recycling 10 tons of material
after each game, and a computerized energy management system for
heaters, TVs and lighting.
Constellation Energy currently offers Maryland residents a green
electricity choice plan that automatically includes 100 percent green
energy — energy generated from renewable sources such as wind and solar.
Constellation Energy, the nationwide leader in the commercial
electricity sector, began providing residential electric service under
its Constellation Electric brand to Maryland residents last year,
offering fixed-price certainty on electricity supply at rates lower than
the current utility standard offer prices.
Constellation Energy offers a simple online sign-up process to Maryland
homeowners and renters at home.constellation.com
or consumers may call 1-866-577-4700.
