Energy Efficiency Begins At Home For 20 Top Con Edison Contractors
Honorees Delivered Savings for Customers in 2015 -- Con Edison honored 20 companies from New York City and Westchester County for helping customers make upgrades to their homes to save energy and money.
The honorees were chosen for their work during 2015 when Con Edison residential customers made HVAC upgrades that save approximately 3,000 megawatt hours of electricity and 25,000 dekatherms of gas a year.
Con Edison paid out more than 4,300 rebates totaling $2.7 million last year to residential customers who upgraded their heating and cooling systems.
The company regularly reviews its energy efficiency programs to find new opportunities and recently announced a limited-time increased rebate on eligible mini-split heat pumps. Customers can receive a $400 rebate on this zoned ductless heating and cooling system, which can reduce energy costs by up to 30 percent.
In addition, homeowners who install qualifying mini-splits in 2016 may be eligible to receive a $300 federal tax credit. Con Edison has an energy-saving solution for everyone. Find out more at conEd.com/energyefficiency or by calling 1-877-870-6118.
