NEARLY 37,000 REGISTER FOR RETAIL CHOICE
IN FIRST FIFTEEN DAYS OF ENROLLMENT PERIOD

Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc. (Con Edison) announced today that 36,862 customers registered for Retail Choice in the first fifteen days of the April enrollment period, representing 356 of the 500 megawatts available for the program's first phase. A total of 32,448 are residential, religious and small commercial customers.

Retail Choice gives Con Edison customers the opportunity to select an electricity supplier from about 20 energy services companies (ESCOs) currently registered with the New York State Public Service Commission. To sign up for the program, customers can contact one or more ESCOs directly or call the Con Edison Retail Choice Information line - 1-800-780-2884 - and request that their names be released to all ESCOs. A list of registered ESCOs also is available on our web site.

"All indications are that the number of those enrolling in the Retail Choice Program will continue to increase," said Gary Groscup, Con Edison's vice president of customer operations. "Availability for this initial phase of the program is limited, so anyone interested in participating should enroll as soon as possible," Groscup added.

Con Edison is one of the nation's largest utility companies, with more than $7 billion in annual revenues and approximately $15 billion in assets. The company, a subsidiary of Consolidated Edison, Inc., provides electric, gas and steam service to more than three million customers in New York City and Westchester County, New York. \n\n\n\n\n
