Con Edison Launches $50
Home Energy Survey
NEW YORK - Con Edison customers can get a home energy survey for $50 and receive energy-saving bulbs and other devices at no extra cost. Holly Malekian of Dobbs Ferry, NY was among the first to benefit from the survey when “Green Team” experts installed weather stripping and compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) in their home and recommended updated attic insulation, among other improvements.
This new program is part of the company commitment to help customers save on energy bills while helping the environment. Con Edison residential electric customers in one-to-four family homes are eligible for the incentives.
“I learned a great deal about how energy efficient my home could be with just a few simple changes, as well as the savings I can get by participating in the various other programs the Green Team recommended. I really needed the Smartstrip and didn’t realize how much money the CFLs and weather stripping he installed would save me,” said Ms. Malekian.
Con Edison “Green Team” professionals are now available to visit customers’ homes and provide a customized list of recommendations on how best to save money. While there, experts will install free energy-saving products such as CFLs, a Smart power strip, and other free energy-saving devices, all at no extra cost.
“This survey is an easy, yet detailed way to show our customers how to save money on their bills and run their homes at peak efficiency,” said Cristina Coltro, energy efficiency programs manager, Con Edison.
