Con Edison Expresses Support For Governor Hochul's Clean Energy Policies
Con Edison commends Governor Hochul for her focus on delivering New York’s clean energy vision through the acceleration of clean energy infrastructure buildout, the reduction of energy infrastructure costs, and helping New Yorkers reduce their reliance on fossil fuels.
We share the Governor’s emphasis on addressing potential costs, protecting economically vulnerable customers and ensuring that all New Yorkers are able to participate in the clean energy transition.
Con Edison and our dynamic, diverse workforce of 14,000 people work every day in support of the Governor’s energy vision. We are dedicated to ensuring our customers can access solar power, electrify their heating, invest in energy efficiency, and build on the transition to renewables in a manner that responsibly manages impacts to the grid.
Eliminating the 100-foot rule for natural gas connections will accelerate shifting away from fossil fuels and achieving the state’s environmental goals. We applaud the Governor’s bold leadership on this issue.
New York continues its historic clean energy transformation, and Con Edison shares the Governor’s optimism regarding the environmental and economic opportunities and benefits this transition will deliver to our state.
