About Con Edison’s Rates

A Breakdown of Your Bill

Your bill is made up of three different types of costs—delivery, supply, and taxes and fees.

Delivery costs are approved by state regulatory agencies and aren’t subject to market changes. This revenue lets us maintain and upgrade our electric and gas distribution systems, and keep our service safe and reliable.

Supply costs and taxes and fees are not set by Con Edison and are collected and distributed without profit.

Summer Bill Outlook

As a result of higher supply charges by power generators, which Con Edison collects and then passes on to the power plant owners, New York City residential customers may see a 9.5% increase in summer bills compared to last summer. Westchester residential customers may see a decrease of 3.0%.

Your summer bills may also be higher than last year due to increased usage from staying at home during the pandemic. Save with simple, small changes around your home or business.

Bill Impacts Outlined in the Joint Agreement

A large part of the rate increase is driven by taxes, most notably City of New York property taxes, which are now $1.9B as of financial year 2019–2020, and continue to increase every year.
