New Yorkers Mark Earth Day 2007 by Turning to Clean and Renewable Green Power

Reflecting increasing interest in environmental preservation, New Yorkers throughout the Empire State are celebrating Earth Day 2007 by tapping into clean and renewable "Green Power."

Thousands of residential and business customers across the state have already "gone green" by signing up for clean, renewable "Green Power" electricity through ConEdison Solutions and Community Energy, Inc.

"For those wishing to help preserve the environment this Earth Day, 'Green Power' represents a smart and affordable way to protect our planet's precious resources," said Jorge J. Lopez, President and CEO of ConEdison Solutions. "In most parts of New York State, households and businesses can easily tap Green Power as an emission-free and renewable form of energy."

"Green Power" purchased from ConEdison Solutions by commercial, industrial and government energy users, consists of emissions-free NewWind Energy wind power. Green Power for residential customers is a blend of 35 percent NewWind Energy and 65 percent hydropower. Residential customers may also opt for 100% NewWind Energy, which is produced in upstate New York and Pennsylvania by Community Energy, Inc., to demonstrate their commitment to the environment on Earth Day.

Pollution-free Green Power gives consumers the opportunity to make a positive impact on the environment. For New York residential customers, "Green Power" costs approximately one cent more per kilowatt-hour than the ConEdison Solutions standard offer. For a residential customer using 350 kilowatt-hours of electricity per month, the additional cost is approximately $3.50 per month for the wind/hydropower blend above standard electricity rates. For a typical residential customers choosing 100% wind power, the price is approximately $8.75 more per month. In addition, New York State tax is eliminated on the delivery portion of utility bills for ConEdison Solutions customers.
