Con Edison Seeking Companies to Help Customers Reduce Electric Usage & Save

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 20, 2006 -- Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc. (Con Edison) today issued a Request For Proposal (RFP) soliciting applications from qualified parties to supply the company with new demand side management (DSM) resources, delivered to targeted areas in New York City and Westchester County.

The company is forecasting increased power use throughout its service area. At the same time, energy use in certain neighborhoods is projected to increase at a faster pace than in others. This growth results in the need for electric delivery upgrades in those communities. As part of Con Edison's effort to effectively manage this growth, the RFP seeks savings of approximately 109 megawatts in 12 neighborhoods over a multi-year period beginning in 2008.

Residential and commercial customers may qualify, and there may be financial incentives to customers to help offset installation costs. Customers could see savings by installing DSM resources such as energy efficient lighting, air conditioning, refrigeration, motors, clean distributed generation, and steam air conditioning.

Qualifying proposals will be evaluated based on the proposed price, technical and financial qualifications of the respondents and proposed implementation program.
