Con Edison kicks off the year with an overview of the six top energy trends to watch and how they affect customers

Really interesting the hear the discussion on how it affects customers specifically. Oftentimes these are more 'behind the curtain' changes at utilities-- customers flip on and off the light switch and it works; customers pay their monthly bills; customers get frustrated at outages. These are the typical touchpoints, regardless of if the utility is shifting its energy mix, investing in grid upgrades, etc. But communicating and sharing those with the customers is a great tool for utilities
