NYU-Poly, in collaboration with Con Edison, is able to provide Con Edison employees online graduate education in the following programs:
Consolidated Edison Company of New York (Con Edison), a regulated utility, provides electric service in New York City and most of Westchester County. Con Edison owns and operates the world’s largest district steam system, providing steam service in most of Manhattan. Con Edison is a subsidiary of Consolidated Edison, Inc., one of the nation’s largest investor-owned energy companies, with approximately $13 billion in annual revenue, and $34 billion in assets.
Con Edison is committed to supporting New York State’s competitive energy market. Through its PowerYourWay program, the company encourages customers to learn about other electric and natural gas companies — known as energy services companies (ESCOs) — and to compare the pricing options and services that they offer. When a customer chooses to buy the energy their home or business uses through an ESCO, however, Con Edison still continues to deliver the electricity and gas, and responds if there is a service emergency.
Today, Con Edison operates one of the world's largest and most complex — yet most reliable — energy delivery systems, in the world's most dynamic marketplace. As we look to the challenges of the future, Con Edison can count on one advantage that no other company has — the energy of New York.
