How to tell a real Con Edison employee from a fake one

The next time someone stands at your door and says they're from Con Edison, ask to see their ID. You can also call 1-800-75CONED (1-800-752-6633) to verify it. And tell your friends and family (especially the most vulnerable among them) to do the same

Planning construction? Planting a tree? Doing some renovations?

Call before you dig! Whether you're doing the work yourself or using a landscaper or contractor, call 811 at least a few days before you dig on public or private property. Call anytime. This line is answered around the clock. When you call, we'll mark the approximate location of our gas pipelines free of charge. Staying away from these pipelines can prevent damage that can cause a dangerous gas leak. For more information visit Dig Safely NY or read our brochures on Natural Gas Safety and What Contractors Must Know.
