The Con Edison Man is an employee of Consolidated Edison, Inc. in New York City.
The Con Edison Man, along with the Police Captain, was brought in to shut down the protection grid of the Containment Unit. Walter Peck led them in. In the basement, Con Edison immediately admitted he hadn't seen anything like the Containment Unit. Peck didn't care and ordered him to shut it down. Peter Venkman advised the Con Edison Man not to do it. After some tense words, the Con Edison Man went to the gray lever and pulled it down with much hesitation. After alarms and lights were set off, he only uttered, "Oh shit" then fled the Firehouse with the others.
