Program Details

Smart thermostats allow you to adjust settings using the internet or your mobile phone, from anywhere, and are equipped with programming features that maximize the efficiency of your central air-conditioning system. Smart thermostats also allow Con Edison to remotely adjust the amount of electricity your central air-conditioning system uses to help reduce the demand for energy. A signal similar to a pager and/or beeper will communicate with your central air-conditioning thermostat and will cycle your unit's compressor on and off to reduce demand on our electric system. Your fan will continue to operate and circulate air. You can always override the adjustment if necessary.

How the Program Works

The Con Edison Central Air Conditioning Program will be called when Con Edison needs to reduce electricity use.

  • Con Edison residential and religious-rate customers with central air-conditioning.
