About Consolidated Edison
The Consolidated Edison Company, commonly known as ConEd or Con Edison, is one of the largest utility companies in not only New York but the entire world. Founded in 1823 as New York Gas Light Company, the utility now serves more than 10 million customers in the state of New York, covering residents and businesses in all five New York City boroughs and nearby Westchester County, including Yonkers.
New York’s deregulated energy market means that consumers can continue to buy directly from ConEd or shop around to buy energy from other providers. Many of these providers, known as energy service companies (ESCOs) in New York, offer energy services in ConEd’s service area.
