CON EDISONíS E*BILL PROGRAM PLANTS TREES AT BRONX HIGH SCHOOL
NEW YORK – Students from DeWitt Clinton High School in the Bronx planted 10 trees in the school’s courtyard recently thanks to funds raised by Con Edison’s growing online payment program.
The company is donating $1 to a tree planting fund for each customer that signs up for e*bill. Con Edison has enrolled 140,000 customers in the paperless billing option since beginning the program in 2007.
The Con Edison e*bill program is a fast, convenient, and environmentally friendly payment option. Each month, Con Edison notifies customers via e-mail when bills are ready for viewing. Switching to e*bill is easy and customers can visit www.conEd.com/ebill to enroll.
