This company was incorporated in New York in 1927 and is headquartered in Poughkeepsie. In 1900, three men Thaddeus Beal, his father William R. Beal and John Wilkie purchased two companies which provided 5,000 Newburgh, New York customers with electricity and gas.

It was a bold move to reach beyond the economic activity of the city into a sparsely populated region, but Beal, Wilkie, and their associates recognized the need for consolidation of the many separate electric and gas companies serving the region. Over the next 25 years these men realized their vision. With the emergence of new energy technology and through the merger of 80-plus independent electric and gas companies, the Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation was formed.NY-New York Utility Companies Electric Companies Gas Companies Specimen Pieces Under $10 Under $5 Bird Featured Eagle Featured
