Baltimore Office Of Sustainability And Baltimore Community Foundation Announce Constellation’s Investment In A Sustainable Baltimore

Today, Mayor Rawlings-Blake announced that Constellation is investing an additional $450,000 in the Baltimore Energy Challenge (BEC) and City Schools Sustainability Challenge (CSSC) programs bringing the company’s total contribution to $650,000. These innovative and proven programs are designed to motivate schools, households, businesses and religious institutions to reduce their energy use, and increase sustainability awareness.

Since the launch of the Sustainability Plan in 2009, Baltimore has become a national sustainability leader, implementing best practices to grow a green, healthy and prosperous city. Since 2009, more than 80 schools have participated in energy and sustainability projects.

“The Baltimore Energy Challenge is an innovative and successful program, and we’re proud to support sustainable practices in the communities we serve,” said John Quinn, director, performance and policy, environmental strategy at Exelon, Constellation’s parent company. “This grant will help to address important energy reduction goals outlined by the state of Maryland and the Baltimore Sustainability Commission and aligns with the commitment Exelon and Constellation have made to invest in Maryland’s clean energy future.”

“The Baltimore Energy Challenge encourages students and residents to make simple behavior changes and home improvements that conserve their energy use and reduces their energy bills. And the City Schools Sustainability Challenge has played a key role in making our schools greener,” said Mayor Rawlings-Blake. “The participating communities along with their schools have engaged, educated and motivated residents to reduce energy use and implement sustainability practices such as recycling, composting and gardening.”

“We believe that engagement in the City Schools Sustainability Challenge can be transformational for our students, both academically and personally, while also making positive contributions to our schools, our communities, and the city of Baltimore. The challenge demonstrates to our students that they have the power to initiate change and the ability to make things better for themselves and others,” said Superintendent Dr. Andres A. Alonso.
