investing in the energy infrastructure

Energy is vital to New Yorkers' lives and to New York City, which is the financial, corporate, and communications capital of the United States, as well as a leading world destination for business and tourism. Con Edison provides electric, gas, and steam service to 660-square-miles of New York City and Westchester County, an area with a population of more than nine million residents. We are striving to maintain our excellent reliability record and to build for future economic growth and energy demand by making significant investment in our infrastructure.

Con Edison is engaged in a long-term, multibillion-dollar program to enhance and improve its electric, gas, and steam transmission and distribution systems. This level of investment is necessary to enable the company to meet the continually increasing demand driven by more housing, more computers and office equipment, and more air conditioning. Con Edison needs continued investment to provide the infrastructure that sustains the economic growth of the region, while maintaining the company's unparalleled level of reliability. We take our commitment and our responsibility to our customers and to our service area seriously.

In addition to investing in our physical assets, Con Edison is simultaneously working towards improving energy efficiency and protecting the environment. We are taking a comprehensive approach to addressing the future energy needs of our customers. So while we are building new substations and transmission lines, we are also encouraging customers to “go green” and we are working with all levels of government to address climate change.
