Initiatives from Con Edison

Con Edison is testing fault current interrupters from British company Zenergy. The device uses a superconductor to reverse the current when it senses a current overload.

Con Ed has joined LIPA in an initiative to construct a wind farm off the Rockaways. The first phase of their study concluded that with improvements to their respective transmission systems, an interconnection of up to 700 MW is feasible.
