Con Edison, the investor-owned utility that provides electricity to 3.4 million customers in the New York City area, and solar company SunPower have announced a collaboration to offer SunPower solar energy systems to homeowners.
Con Edison will deliver personalized energy usage details to its customers through the utility’s digital Connected Homes platform starting this spring. By fall, SunPower solar will be highlighted as a clean energy solution for managing consumer electricity costs in Con Edison’s Home Energy Reports.
“Customer engagement is at the heart of our Connected Homes platform, which will provide customers with more energy choices and an ability to manage their consumption,” explains Jamie Brennan, director of demonstration projects for Con Edison
SunPower says it will work with homeowners to cover the variety of financing options available, including owning the system through a cash purchase or loan or leasing the system.
