Constellation boosts Challenge funding

Constellation is investing an additional $450,000 in the Baltimore Energy Challenge and City Schools Sustainability Challenge programs, bringing the Baltimore-based company’s total contribution to $650,000, it was announced Monday by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

Created in 2009 as a nine-month pilot initiative in eight city neighborhoods, the programs are designed to motivate schools, households, businesses and religious institutions to reduce their energy use and increase sustainability awareness.

Since 2009, more than 80 schools have participated in energy and sustainability projects. The programs are administered by Baltimore Office of Sustainability and the Baltimore Community Foundation.
