BALTIMORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Baltimore Ravens today announced that they have named Constellation, a subsidiary of Exelon Corporation and a leading competitive retail energy supplier, their “Preferred Energy Choice.” The designation comes as part of a multi-year sponsorship renewal agreement that gives Constellation exclusive naming rights of the 300 and 400 suite levels at M&T Bank Stadium, and includes signage throughout those levels. This is the first time that the Ravens have welcomed a corporate sponsor at the suite level of M&T Bank Stadium.
“The Ravens have enjoyed a long relationship with Constellation that has allowed us to make a positive difference in our community and environment,” said Kevin Rochlitz, senior vice president of corporate sales and business development for the Ravens. "We are pleased to have their support as we continue our efforts to be a model of sustainability for the NFL and our fans.”
As part of the agreement, Constellation will also serve as the presenting sponsor of the annual “State of the Ravens” event featuring General Manager Ozzie Newsome and Head Coach John Harbaugh.
“The Ravens are known for their tactical, smart approach to the game. It’s no surprise that they’ve taken the same approach to managing their energy costs and achieving their sustainability goals by teaming with Constellation,” said Bruce Stewart, senior vice president and chief marketing officer for Constellation. “Constellation is committed to the City of Baltimore, and we are pleased to power game day for our hometown team.”
The sponsorship renewal agreement expands Constellation’s already extensive relationship with the team. The company has supplied power to the Under Armour Performance Center, the team’s 200,000-square-foot headquarters and training facility in Owings Mills, Md., since 2013, and serves as the “Official Solar Partner of the Baltimore Ravens,” having recently announced a 375-kilowatt (DC) solar generation project that will generate approximately 15 percent of the team headquarters’ electricity needs. The Ravens have also worked with Constellation to match the electricity used during “Green Games” through the purchase of Green-e Energy* certified wind renewable energy certificates.
The agreement also includes the renewal of Constellation’s Sacks for Science program. For each sack recorded during the season, Constellation sponsors a field trip for one local school group to experience the Maryland Science Center Power Up! energy exhibit. Entering its third year, the program has funded visits to the Maryland Science Center for over 3,000 students from 44 local schools.
