coolNYC, a Con Edison program offered in partnership with ThinkEco, allows New Yorkers to work together to ensure the reliability of NYC's electric grid. Customers who join coolNYC have the option to participate in heat events. During an event, coolNYC may turn your AC on and off periodically or change your AC to a slightly higher thermostat setting to reduce power usage. coolNYC Events generally take place when the electric grid is under strain, typically on very hot days.
