Mitsubishi Electric, Con Edison Collaborate for New York State Clean Energy Initiative
SUWANEE, Georgia, November 30, 2017 – Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. Cooling & Heating Division (Mitsubishi Electric), a leading manufacturer of Zoned Comfort Solutions™ and Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) cooling and heating systems, announces its collaboration with Con Edison to support New York State’s initiative, Reforming the Energy Vision (REV). REV is a comprehensive energy strategy that was created to build a clean, resilient and more affordable energy system in the state of New York.
REV is driving New York's six investor-owned utilities to work with energy innovators to lower costs and test advanced technologies through REV Demonstration Projects (REV Demo Projects). Mitsubishi Electric and Con Edison – which serves New York City and Westchester County, N.Y. – are partners in a REV demonstration project called “Connected Homes."
Under the project, Con Edison residential customers in certain areas receive Home Energy Reports that analyze their energy usage and offer suggestions on how they may save. These customers may be eligible to receive rebates on Mitsubishi Electric Zoned Comfort Solutions™ through the end of the year. Rebates may range from $150 to $800, depending upon equipment installed in each customer’s home. To be eligible, equipment must be installed by December 31, 2017.
"Our collaboration with Con Edison and participation in REV is integral to expanding our message on sustainability and energy efficiency. We are honored to help offer homeowners in New York state a better and cleaner energy option, and hope this pilot program encourages other utilities to follow suit,” says Eric Dubin, senior director of Utilities and Performance Construction, Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. Cooling & Heating Division.
Mitsubishi Electric is the first and only manufacturer of ductless cooling and heating systems to participate in a REV Demo Marketing Project. To see how Mitsubishi Electric can save you energy in select New York areas this winter, click here.
