Additional Information: 

Consolidated Edison is a utility company providing gas, electric, and steam service in New York City.

A power blackout in New York in 1977 in which Con Edison was accused of "gross negligence" resulted in wide-spread looting, violence, vandalism, and arson. The blackout sparked many protest buttons with slogans such as "Down with Con Edison" and "Con Ed has us by the Bulbs".
