Con Edison's New Area Growth Zones for Gas with a Sweet Incentive

New York City, The Bronx

Converting to Natural Gas Just Got a Little Easier
April 9, 2015

The other cost, typically referred to the "capital construction cost," is the cost for Con Edison to provide and install gas facilities up to your building's property line — that is, the cost of making the connection from the gas line in the street to your building.

Buildings within the just-announced zones may be eligible to connect at no cost for a single firm-gas service. The goal of this zone approach is to allow Con Edison to coordinate construction activity to reduce disruption and noise in neighborhoods. Each zone has an applicable timeline and terms for eligibility, with participation deadlines as early as May 8, 2015.
