Business Description

Industry: Utilities - Regulated » Utilities - Diversified

CH Energy Group Inc was incorporated in 1998. CH Energy Group is the holding company parent corporation of two principal, wholly owned subsidiaries, Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation ('Central Hudson') and Central Hudson Enterprises Corporation ('CHEC'). Central Hudson purchases, sells at wholesale, and distributes electricity and natural gas at retail in portions of New York State. Central Hudson also generates a small portion of its electricity requirements. Central Hudson serves a territory comprising approximately 2,600 square miles in the Hudson Valley, with a population estimated at 680,000. Electric service is available throughout the territory, and natural gas service is provided in and about the cities of Poughkeepsie, Beacon, Newburgh, and Kingston, New York, and in certain outlying and intervening territories. Central Hudson is engaged in the conduct and support of research and development activities, which are focused on the improvement of existing energy technologies and the development of new technologies for the delivery and customer use of energy. Central Hudson's natural gas business competes with other fuels, especially fuel oil and propane. Central Hudson is subject to regulation by the PSC regarding, among other things, services rendered (including the rates charged), major transmission facility siting, accounting treatment of certain items, and issuance of securities. CHEC's wholly owned subsidiary Griffith Energy Services, Inc. ('Griffith) is engaged in the business of marketing petroleum products and related services to retail and wholesale customers. Griffith is an energy services company, which is engaged in fuel distribution, including heating oil, gasoline, diesel fuel, kerosene, and propane, and the installation and maintenance of heating, ventilating, and air conditioning equipment. Griffith participates in a competitive fuel distribution industry that is subject to different risks than those found in the businesses of the regulated utility, Central Hudson. Griffith faces competition from other fuel distribution companies and from companies supplying other fuels for heating, such as natural gas and propane. Central Hudson and Griffith are subject to regulation by federal, state, and local authorities with respect to the environmental effects of their operations.
