"The  company experienced strong financial performance in the first quarter, and our  workforce performed admirably during the challenges of a persistent, lingering  winter," said John McAvoy, chairman and CEO of Con Edison. "We are also very  pleased with a proposed settlement with the New York State Public Service  Commission that will keep electric delivery rates flat for our customers  through 2016, marking the third consecutive year of no customer delivery rate  increases, and providing resources for investments essential to delivering safe  and reliable service. In addition, we will continue plans to implement a smart  meter program to further enhance customer service, grid reliability and outage  management, while encouraging expansion of new customer-based technologies."The following table is a reconciliation of Con  Edison’s reported earnings per share to adjusted earnings per share and  reported net income to adjusted earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2015  and 2014. [TABLE ]}Earnings
