Fed Ruling Means Higher Con-Ed Bills

A new ruling from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) might cost Con Edison customers.


A new ruling from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission might raise Con Edison bills for customers.

The New York Power Authority estimates that FERC's ruling will cost power users in New York $400 million to $500 million, leaving Con Ed's customers to foot $300-375 million of that bill, according to the New York Post

Trickling down, that means Con Ed customers throughout the five boroughs can expect to pay an average $9 more a month in electric bills starting in January. 

A spokesperson for Con Ed told Patch the company has joined others in requesting a rehearing of the FERC order.

"We seek to balance the interests of all stakeholders, including customers and suppliers," a statement from the company said.
