For more than 180 years, Consolidated Edison, Inc. has served the world's most dynamic and demanding marketplace - metropolitan New York.
Con Edison's principal business segments are Consolidated Edison Company of New York's regulated electric, gas and steam utility activities, Orange & Rockland Utilities' (O&R) regulated electric and gas utility activities, and Con Edison's competitive energy businesses.
Con Edison of New York provides electric service to approximately 3.3 million customers and gas service to approximately 1.1 million customers in New York City and Westchester County. The company also provides steam service in parts of Manhattan. O&R provides electric service to 301,000 customers in southeastern New York and adjacent areas of northern New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania and gas service to 130,000 customers in southeastern New York and adjacent areas of eastern Pennsylvania.
Con Edison's competitive energy businesses participate in segments of the electricity industry that are less comprehensively regulated than our regulated businesses. These segments include the operation of electric generation facilities, trading of electricity and fuel, sales of electricity to wholesale and retail customers, and sales of certain energy-related goods and services.
Con Edison Solutions sells electricity directly to delivery-service customers of utilities primarily in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions and also offers energy-related services.
Con Edison Development participates in infrastructure projects. During the second quarter of 2008, Con Edison Development and its subsidiary, CED/SCS Newington, LLC, completed the sale of their ownership interests in power generating projects with an aggregate capacity of approximately 1,706 MW.
Con Edison Energy procures electric energy and capacity for Con Edison Solutions and fuel for other companies. It sells the electric capacity and energy produced by plants owned, leased, or operated by others. The company also provides energy risk management services to Con Edison Solutions, offers these services to others, and enters into wholesale supply transactions.
As a result of our performance, we have been able to increase our dividend each of the past 39 years. Few companies can match that achievement. We remain committed to providing our shareholders a superior, low-risk, long-term total return.
