New technology at facility helps Con Edison to work more efficiently

Con Edison began working with new technology on Wednesday to create a state of the art facility in the Bronx.

The new facility will analyze used power cables to see what could have caused a problem. The new technology is able to tell if snow, water and salt can effect how long the cables will last. This will also help the Bronx center replace underground electric cables that have been around for nearly one hundred years. Con Edison plans to use the new system to replace old cables with more environmentally friendly ones.

An official from Con Edison says they currently spend more than $700 million dollars updating its electric cables.
