ConEdison Solutions Marks Earth Day 2011 s a National Leader in Sustainability
April 22, 2011
New York, NY – April 22, 2011: In recognition of Earth Day on April 22nd, ConEdison Solutions is reaffirming its commitment to sustainability, as demonstrated by its 365-day-a-year contribution to an eco-friendly planet.
ConEdison Solutions upholds the sustainability principles embodied by Earth Day in two key ways:
First, its "Green Power" program delivers clean and renewable energy to more than 23,000 business and residential customers in New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts.
Second, the firm provides an extensive and sophisticated array of energy efficiency services to government facilities, universities, public school districts, large businesses, and hospitals.
“ConEdison Solutions is dedicated to offering clean and renewable energy -- coupled with state-of-the-art energy efficiency services -- to boost sustainability and promote America’s energy independence,” said Jorge J. Lopez, Chief Executive Officer of ConEdison Solutions. “Earth Day reminds us to reduce energy consumption and work together to preserve environmental quality. This is central to our corporate mission, and our team is proud to help protect our planet."
In 2010, renewable energy delivered through the “Green Power” program cut fossil fuel consumption by an amount equivalent to 380,000 barrels of oil. The impact of such renewable energy was equal to the impact of preserving 1,330 acres of forest, an area equivalent to a full, dense forest one-and-a-half times the size of New York City's Central Park. The 2010 volume of renewables reduced harmful carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 200,000 tons. The “green” energy derives from wind power in New York State or around the country, and also from environmentally friendly “run-of-the-river” hydro power generated within New York State.
On the energy efficiency side, the company's energy professionals deliver a broad range of services tailored to meet a facility's energy efficiency and sustainable energy goals. Clients typically seek ConEdison Solutions' assistance to upgrade facilities, reduce consumption, lower energy bills and lessen their environmental impact, with little or no capital investment by the client. The company's award-winning energy efficiency programs have assisted hundreds of institutions of all sizes nationwide.
