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.

We buy the energy you use in the competitive, wholesale supply market. We pass our costs on to you, without making a profit—what we pay, you pay. Energy supply costs vary and are affected by factors such as the weather, demand, and market trends.

If you purchase energy from an Energy Service Company, you’ll see your cost savings in the unregulated supply portion of your bill.

2022 Summer Bill Outlook

Energy bills are expected to go up compared to last summer. New York City residential customers may see a 12% increase in summer bills and Westchester residential customers may see a 16% increase in summer bills.

One key reason is rising energy supply costs, which are affecting energy customers across the United States. Weather and your individual energy use also affect your bill.

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.
