About Con Edison Solutions
Con Edison Solutions, based in Valhalla, NY, is an energy services company (ESCO) that also builds sustainable energy infrastructure for clients, focusing on government and education, healtcare institutions, business and homeowners.
The company formerly operated retail electricity and natural gas businesses in 12 states and the District of Columbia, but it sold those operations to Baltimore-based Constellation Energy in September 2016. The sale allowed Con Edison Solutions to focus on renewable energy and services and energy efficiency operations.
What Con Edison does now
Since divesting its retail electricity business, Con Edison performs such functions as creating wind and solar systems for clients. It also offers residential solar projects in Massachusetts, New York, and Connecticut.
Its goals for clients include minimizing their carbon footprint while stabilizing power costs, making their equipment more energy efficient, and increasing the supply of renewable energy sources.
What Con Edison did before
The part of the company sold to Constellation sold residential electricity in Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, and Pennsylvania, as well as commercial electricity to those states and Delaware, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Rhode Island, and Texas.

Deregulated electricity FAQ
What’s the difference between an electricity supplier and a utility?
In deregulated states, electricity suppliers (called providers or electric service companies in some states), sell electricity to residential and business customers. Utilities deliver the electricity to residences or business. In Texas, the utility cannot sell power, only develop it. In other deregulated states, utilities can sell electricity. In all states, utilities deal with power outages and power infrastructure maintenance and repairs.
Do I have to pay a deposit to begin service?
You might. Providers use your credit score to determine whether you’ll pay a deposit and how large that deposit will be. If you don’t want to pay a deposit, you have options.
How does switching service work, and will I have to pay a fee to switch?
Your new supplier will take care of the switch, which in many cases can be done without an in-person visit from your utility. If you’re still under contract to one provider and want to switch to another, you may be charged an early termination fee.
