NYSEG short for New York State Electric & Gas has a history that dates back to 1852. It was originally called Ithaca Gas Light Company and was created by six businessmen who got together and pledged $75,000 for its creation. Before long they also built a gas plant and laid mains to run it through. Only a year later the residents of Ithaca got their first street lamps. They now provide over 40% of upstate New York energy. They have more than 872,000 electricity companies and provide natural gas to over 250,000 through 7,000 miles of pipeline.
