CANTON — Energy company Constellation will have naming rights to the office and research building planned for Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village.

A multiyear deal between the company and the Village was announced Wednesday. As part of the agreement, Constellation also will be the exclusive power and gas provider for the Village, which includes the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and will find ways to help the Village conserve energy and save money.

“We look forward to working with Constellation and receiving its energy expertise while also continuing to develop outstanding programming that will emanate from the Constellation Center for Excellence,” Village CEO Mike Crawford said in a news release.

Constellation has about 2 million residential, public- and private-sector customers and is the official energy provider and sustainability partner for the PGA and its major championships. The Baltimore-based company offers electric and natural gas services in Ohio and throughout the country. The company’s Efficiency Made Easy energy solutions system will be used to reduce the Village’s carbon footprint and expenses during continued construction of the attraction.

“Constellation provides energy solutions to two-thirds of the Fortune 100,” said Mark Huston, president of national retail business for Constellation. “We look forward to bringing that expertise to the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village. In addition to serving as the official power and gas provider, we are helping the Hall and the Village deliver on their commitment to become more sustainable organizations and will leverage our full suite of clean energy solutions to help achieve that goal.”

Pat Lindesmith, chief partnership officer for the Hall, said conversations with Constellation began about two years ago. The company was drawn to the scale of the Village, the opportunities there would be to showcase its products, and the mission of the Hall. The Center for Excellence was chosen for naming rights because of its prominence within the Village and also because of the programming planned.

The Constellation Center for Excellence might house a corporate leadership academy, a coaches academy, a character development academy for young athletes, and an officiating institute for referees. Earlier renderings showed a permanent scoreboard for Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium built into the side of the center.

The Village is a multicomponent, nearly billion-dollar development planned for the area around the Hall. It already includes the museum, Benson Stadium, and a youth sports complex. Other elements expected in the next phase of construction are the Constellation Center for Excellence, a hotel, retail and dining, and some kind of entertainment facility. Construction could resume as early as this spring.

There is no public timeline for when specific buildings will break ground or be finished, but more partnerships are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
