Correction: Children's Museum-Constellation story

Friday - 11/9/2012, 1:15pm  ET

OXON HILL, Md. - In a story Nov. 8, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Constellation Energy is the parent company of Baltimore Gas and Electric. The story should have specified that Constellation and BGE are affiliated businesses both owned by Exelon Corp.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Constellation donates $1M to children's museum

Constellation Energy donates $1M to National Children's Museum being built near DC

OXON HILL, Md. (AP) _ Constellation Energy is donating $1 million in cash and services to support the National Children's Museum being developed at National Harbor just south of Washington.

The museum announced Thursday that the company, an affiliate of Baltimore Gas and Electric, will help fund an outdoor experience that will demonstrate renewable energy with solar and wind power.

Half of the company's $1 million pledge will be given through in-kind equipment or services. The museum is designating Constellation as its energy sponsor.

Museum President and CEO Willard Whitson says the museum will be able to set strong environmental standards.

The new museum will open Dec. 14. Part of the museum will have a "Sesame Street" theme for children ages 3 and under. Admission will cost $10 per person.
