Submission + - ConEd to end DC power service in Manhattan (nypost.com)

An anonymous reader writes: The New York Daily News reports that ConEd has received approval to end its DC power service in New York City:

The utility has won state permission to switch off its direct current service, which Thomas Edison powered up in Manhattan 125 years ago yesterday. It now provides DC power to just five customers in Manhattan. The Public Service Commission order is the last gasp of a century-old war between Edison, a direct-current proponent, and Nikola Tesla, who invented alternating current.
