NATION'S TOP-RATED UTILTY WEB SITE GETS A NEW LOOK
Consolidated Edison, Inc. has launched a new Web site, http://www.conedison.com/ to reflect its new corporate structure - a holding company and four subsidiaries.
"We've taken our top-rated site, which was on-line prior to our restructuring, and linked it to our holding company's new home page, Consolidated Edison, Inc. Visitors can use the holding company Web site as a springboard to reach all its subsidiaries including Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc. (Con Edison), Con Edison Solutions, Con Edison Energy and Con Edison Development," said Horace S. Webb, Con Edison's senior vice president of public affairs.
Con Edison's redesigned site still has interactive features and materials to download, such as secure customer- specific billing information, energy usage history, minority business program vendor pages, accounts payable information and contractor-related interactive links.
These features caught the attention of Advertising Age's Business Marketing magazine's Netmarketing http://www.netb2b.com/nm200, which ranked Con Edison the number one utility among business-to-business Web sites nationwide.
The company has recently started an Internet-based procurement program, which allows vendors to place bids for contracts with Con Edison on-line. A direct-debit feature will soon be added to the customer bill payment option.
Consolidated Edison, Inc. is one of the nation's largest investor-owned energy companies, with more than $7 billion in annual revenues and approximately $15 billion in assets. The company provides a wide range of energy-related products and services to its customers through its four subsidiaries: Consolidated Edison of New York, Inc., a regulated utility providing electric, gas and steam service to New York City and Westchester County, New York; Con Edison Solutions, a retail energy services company; Con Edison Energy, a wholesale energy supply company; and Con Edison Development, an infrastructure development company.\n\n\n\n\n
