CONED CHOOSES AEG TO MANAGE DIRECT LOAD CONTROL PROGRAM

Consolidated Edison of New York (Con Edison) contracted with AEG to manage a pilot direct load control Program targeting commercial customers, under 50KW, in Queens and Brooklyn, who have central air conditioning systems. The program offers a free thermostat and installation, a rebate, and the ability to access the thermostat over the Internet. In return, Con Edison, during times of peak demand on the electrical system, had the ability to adjust the thermostat by cycling the compressor 30 min on, 30 min off, with the fan continuing to run.
