NHL goes green with Constellation Energy

By Jeff Barker, The Baltimore Sun

Constellation, a Baltimore-based energy firm, is entering a partnership with the National Hockey League that will promote the company's brand while it works with the league on minimizing the NHL's environmental impact.

Constellation has sponsorship deals with the Ravens and Orioles, among other professional clubs, but this is its first league-wide deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Under the deal, Constellation will conduct energy efficiency analyses, recommend energy management strategies at NHL venues, and support development of renewable energy sources. The savings are intended to offset the league's carbon footprint of 550,000 metric tons during the 2014-15 season.
