For nearly 200 years, Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc. (Con Edison), has been one of the largest utility companies in the country providing electric and gas service to residential and commercial customers across all five boroughs of New York City and Westchester County, including growing areas such as Dutchess County.
Con Edison is a publicly traded company, listed on the New York Stock Exchange under ticker symbol ED (NYSE: ED) with an enterprise value of approximately $48 billion at the end of 2015. The company's headquarters are located at 4 Irving Place in Manhattan.
In 1823, Con Edison's earliest corporate predecessor was chartered by prominent New Yorkers and future American statesmen Aaron Burr and DeWitt Clinton for the New York Gas Light Company. Thomas Edison was an investor in the company when it merged with Ivory Electric Light Company under the name The Consolidated Gas Company, which also performed gas manufacturing and street lighting throughout Manhattan. Several years later, Con Edison took control of a competitor called United Gas Improvement Company.
