Con Edison Sets New Three-Month Record For Energy Use

NEW YORK - Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc. (Con Edison) said today that June, July and August set a record for a three-month electricity sendout of 17,491,313 megawatt hours, nearly 4 percent above the prior record of 16,826,355 megawatt hours set during June, July and August, 2001. This is more than the amount of electricity consumed in North Dakota and South Dakota combined for an entire year.

This summer, the utility had set a new two-month sendout record during July and August, a one-month sendout record for July, as well as establishing two weekend sendout records in August. In addition, five of the company's 10 highest days of peak electricity demand, the greatest amount of energy being used at a given time, have been registered this summer. The Con Edison system delivers energy to approximately 9 million New York City and Westchester County residents.
