Hochul urges Con Edison to review billing after spike in monthly household charges


Following an unexpected and unprecedented spike in billing in January, New York State Governor Kathy Hochul has urged electric company Con Edison to review their billing practices after some businesses and households saw their monthly bill increase up to 300%.

Despite demands for an investigation by city and state legislators, Con Edison spokes members say their company billing policy is not to blame, but instead the “volatile” high costs in energy.
