NEW YORK, Nov. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Con Edison received two prestigious industry awards from PA Consulting at its national ReliabilityOne™ conference held in Austin last night: the 2019 Outstanding Customer Reliability Experience Award, as well as the organization’s Award for Outstanding Reliability in the Northeast Region.
