An array of 1,210 photovoltaic panels will help power the Baltimore Ravens' headquarters and training facility in Owings Mills, energy company Constellation announced Tuesday.

The Ravens will purchase the energy generated from the 375-kilowatt solar power project, expected to provide about 15 percent of the training facility's energy needs. The solar panels will be mounted on the roofs of the facility's field house and grounds keeping buildings. The energy generated by the system is expected to equal the emissions of nearly 13,000 tailgaters with propane grills, or 67 passenger vehicles annually.

The Ravens signed a 20-year agreement to purchase the power from the solar panels, according to Constellation.

Officials are determining when the project will be built, as it cannot interfere with the Ravens' training schedule, but it will likely be done by spring 2016, said Constellation spokeswoman Christina Pratt.
