Con Edison Green Team Hits New Milestone:
1,500 Commercial and Industrial Applications
for Energy Efficiency
NEW YORK -- Con Edison’s Green Team has hit a new milestone – receiving its 1,500th project application for commercial and industrial energy efficiency upgrades. Since last year, the Commercial and Industrial (C & I) Energy Efficiency Program has helped over 1,000 customers save an estimated 82 million kWhrs of energy and has distributed over $6.5 million in rebates.
This achievement positions Con Edison at the forefront of providing its largest energy customers with financial support for energy efficiency projects.
“Our program’s strength comes from the collective knowledge and commitment of energy-conscious customers and the dedication of our Green Team to provide extraordinary customer service,” said David Pospisil, manager of Con Edison’s C&I Energy Efficiency Program. “New York City’s Greater Greener Buildings Plan, is creating an environment in which tenants can shop for energy efficiency in buildings, while encouraging building owners to invest in system improvement projects,” he added.
The Con Edison Green Team C&I Program provides cash rebates and incentives to encourage and facilitate the completion of energy efficiency projects. There is no incentive dollar cap for most projects, and 100 percent of the approved incentive amount is paid after completion. There are two programs for both gas and electric: the Equipment Rebate Program and the Custom Program. Con Edison also offers incentives for energy efficiency studies.
