The Cost of Energy in NYC

Posted by Macie Schreibman on May 26, 2011
In New York City, office buildings consume nearly 80% of all the city’s energy, making that energy weigh in at $2.50 per square foot—nearly $1 more than the national average, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
In response to this number, Con Edison will hold its first Energy Efficiency Summit, taking place June 1 at the Hilton New York. The one-day summit (running from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) will feature business strategies, new technologies, and rebates and incentives that are available to Con Edison’s commercial and industrial (C&I) customers—all aimed at managing energy use and costs.
“Con Edison is committed to providing our customers with the resources they need to lower their energy usage,” says David Pospisil, Con Edison C&I Program Manager.
The company’s Energy Efficiency Program offers businesses cash back through its rebate program for the installation of energy efficient equipment including lighting, heating, air conditioning, LED exit signs, among others. For those customers that want to tackle more complex energy efficiency projects, Con Edison also offers custom programs that include refrigeration system upgrades, compressed air system improvements, industrial process improvements, and more.  
If you’re in the area and would like to register for the summit, visit Or, follow them via Twitter at hashtag #EESummit on June 1st for live updates and content.
