National Sustainability Leader, ConEdison Solutions
April 23, 2012
New York, NY - ConEdison Solutions, a leader in sustainability and a provider of “Green Power” to more than 23,000 business and residential customers in New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts, marked Earth Day on April 22nd with a continued commitment to maintaining an eco-friendly planet.
This past year, the clean and renewable energy delivered by ConEdison Solutions through its “Green Power” program, cut carbon emissions equal to the amount produced by 420,000 barrels of oil. The volume of renewables purchased voluntarily by ConEdison Solutions’ customers reduced damaging carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 200,000 metric tons.
The use of renewable energy by ConEdison Solutions’ customers in 2011 is also equivalent to the preservation of 1,475 acres of forest, an area comparable to a full, dense forest one-and-a-half times the size of New York City's Central Park.
The “green” energy derives from wind power in New York State and around the country, and also from environmentally friendly “run-of-the-river” hydro power generated within New York State.
“Green is an essential aspect of our identity, one that our team is proud to uphold,” 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. We look forward to celebrating Earth Day every year as an opportunity to recommit to better serving our customers and our planet.”
