Con Edison Plugs In Electric Vehicle Website

Con Edison has launched a new website (www.conEd.com/electricvehicles) to help people learn more about electric vehicles, how to keep them charged properly and how to decide which type best serves their travelling needs.

Con Edison introduced the new website as part of the company’s participation in this year’s New York International Auto Show April 22 to May 1 at the Jacob K. Javits Center.

“Customer education is important to the adoption of electric vehicles,” said John Shipman, who heads Con Edison’s EV programs. “Con Edison supports the adoption of electric cars. These vehicles are environmentally friendly and lessen our dependence on oil.”

The company is preparing for individual, early buyers of electric vehicles as well as working closely with businesses that have expressed interest in introducing electric fleets to their operations.

“Our system is ready for electric cars.  We will leverage the capabilities of our existing system, including energy efficiency programs,” said Shipman. “Studies show that approximately 100,000 to 150,000 electric vehicles could be in our service area by 2020.”
