Following a Monday, June 10 meeting in a state proceeding considering Con Edison’s plans to spend a proposed $2 billion to update the electricity system in the wake of Superstorm Sandy, CCCL and several other environmental groups have issued a joint press release that highlights our suggestions for how to invest the money thoughtfully and effectively. The groups, which include CCCL, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), and the Pace Energy and Climate Center (Pace), have formed a coalition to protect consumers and press Con Edison to consider options that not only make the system more resilient in the face of increasingly severe weather events, but also that make it more supportive of electric vehicles, high-efficiency cogeneration systems, and solar photovoltaic systems, and that empower customers to make smarter, lower-carbon decisions about when and how to use energy.

More details on the groups’ requests are available in the release, as are links to the expert testimonies on these issues submitted in the state proceeding.
