Con Edison has officially launched its Clean Energy Update, providing information on the latest installations on transforming the power grid — and giving co-op and condo boards vital data as they strive to reduce their buildings' carbon emissions, amNY reports.
Updated quarterly, the progress report provides updates on the installations of solar panels, battery storage, electric vehicle chargers and other technologies. These reports aim to make it easier to keep track of the deployment of customer-owned clean energy technologies as Con Edison expands and develops its service area, which includes 10 million people in New York City and Westchester County.
“The energy landscape is evolving faster than at any time in our company’s 200-year history, shifting toward cleaner, more decentralized and community-based energy solutions,” says Con Edison Chairman and CEO Tim Cawley. “The energy system of the future will put far more control in the hands of customers. This new era calls for unprecedented transparency and accessibility of information.”
Con Edison has committed as a company to deliver 100% clean energy by 2040, as outlined in its company’s recently expanded Clean Energy Commitment, which will come from a combination of large renewable generators, such as offshore wind turbines, hydroelectric power piped down from Canada, solar power from upstate solar farms, and solar panels owned by customers. The resulting "greening" of the electric grid will be a key factor as co-ops and condos, residential and commercial buildings try to wean themselves from fossil fuels.
Highlights of the recent Clean Energy Update include:
The Con Edison Clean Energy Update will complement the NYC Climate Dashboard launched recently by the city's Office of the Comptroller, which tracks the city’s progress in meeting its climate goals.
