Con Edison has earned recognition for a smart grid innovation that lets customers install super-sized photovoltaic arrays and continue to receive reliable service.
The Solar Electric Power Association named Con Edison a winner of the Solar Power Player Award in the Investor Owned Utility category. The association helps utilities integrate solar energy into their portfolios.
"Our customers are seeking clean-energy options and ability to manage their costs," said Robert Schimmenti, senior vice president, Electric Operations, for Con Edison. "One way we try to help them meet those goals is by making it easy for them to turn to solar, a renewable source that is an important part of our state's energy future."
