- Electricity in Manhattan is supplied by ConEdison and you can move or set up a new service online at coned.com or by phone on 1-800-752-6633. New customers require an ID number from a driver’s license, social security card, passport or similar to avoid paying a deposit.
- Gas in Manhattan is also supplied by ConEdison so you can set up an account at the same time as electricity. For renters, it is likely that rent includes gas so a supply account might not be required. Check with your landlord.
