Con Edison to Host Interactive Clean Energy Exhibit to Celebrate Earth Day 2024

Immersive Experience to Teach New Yorkers About the Benefits of the Clean Energy Transition 

Con Edison will host an interactive exhibit in Union Square Park in Manhattan to celebrate Earth Day 2024. The exhibit will teach visitors about Con Edison’s work to usher in a clean energy future.

The Clean Energy Headspace will kick off the Earth Day Celebrations on April 14, 2024, from noon to 6 p.m. at East 17th Street and Park Ave South in Union Square Park. The Clean Energy Headspace will include personal accounts of the positive impact the clean energy transition has had on New York City -- from the oysters in the Hudson to bodegas in Queens.

“Con Edison’s vision is for every New Yorker to share the benefits of the clean energy transition. Still, many New Yorkers aren’t aware of exactly how this transition will benefit them,” said Tim Cawley, Con Edison’s chairman and chief executive. “That is why we are hitting the streets on Earth Day to speak with New Yorkers about why our investments in clean energy are so important – not just for the planet, but also for the lives of our customers and the communities we serve.”

Visitors to the Clean Energy Headspace exhibit will hear stories from community members about Con Edison’s milestone clean energy achievements, like their installation of “soft” shorelines with native vegetation which have increased shoreline resiliency and biodiversity; their planting of trees which have the potential to reduce urban heat island effect by up to 6 degrees; and the construction of green roofs on new substations, which reduces the risk of flooding. Audio will be available in both English and Spanish. 

The Clean Energy Headspace Exhibit is part of the Earth Day 2024 Festival, which brings together dozens of environmental nonprofits, climate campaigns, and sustainable businesses, as well as live entertainment, kids’ activities, and climate art.  Con Edison is proud to support additional Earth Day 2024 events throughout the five boroughs and Westchester including:
