Con Edison shares President Biden’s dedication to sustainability and applauds today’s executive actions as consistent with the goals in our Clean Energy Commitment. We are encouraging the adoption of electric vehicles, working with customers to help them install solar panels, investing in transmission to get renewable power to customers, and striving to offer customers 100 percent clean electricity.

It also recognizes that addressing climate change and enhancing sustainability will bring benefits across our lives, including improved health and economic opportunities.
