Energizing New York

Con Edison is in the forefront of our industry as a provider of safe, reliable, and clean energy to 10 million customers. Our service territory is dynamic and dense, and we face new challenges every year. But we remain well-positioned to meet those challenges and lead the way toward a cleaner energy future. We remain on pace to fulfill our ambitious Clean Energy Commitment, and in 2023 we intend to build on the progress we made in the past year.

Here’s a snapshot of some of our accomplishments in the past year:
  • Grid Reliability
    Through the Reliable Clean City transmission project we will deliver increasingly renewable power in New York City, while strengthening reliability and helping the state meet its clean energy goals.
  • Clean Energy Update
    With our Clean Energy Update, anyone can track installations of such technologies as solar panels, electric vehicles, and charging stations in our service area.
  • Planning For The Future
    We formed a Climate Resilience Committee to make sure our company and the communities we serve are climate ready.
  • Rooftop Solar
    Largely through our efforts, New York City and Westchester County residents own about 45,000 rooftop solar systems.
  • Smart Meters
    Smart meters we’ve installed in homes and businesses are connected to a network that alerts us to natural gas leaks.
  • Heat Pump Systems
    In early 2023, we relaunched a program that provides customers with incentives to buy and install energy efficient heat pump systems.
  • Research And Development
    Our engineers created a system that uses algorithms and sensors to monitor our transformers and repair or replace them before they fail.
  • Storm Response
    We now have 100 Con Edison and O&R trucks at the ready in Rockland County to greatly improve our response to major storms.
  • Employee Safety
    We’ve added stretching and exercise programs because 25% of our employee injuries are preventable, soft-tissue injuries.
  • Customer Service
    We worked closely with the Public Service Commission to launch a program that helps low-income customers who are behind on their energy bills.
