Dividends4Life: Electric Utility Stocks All Dividend Investors Should Consider Owning

There are plenty of publicly traded utility companies on the markets today, and most dabble in gas, electricity, or some combination of the two. If you're a dividend investor, though, there are actually very few places to look, particularly if you're risk averse.

According to our research, there are only two electric utility companies with dividend growth streaks-i.e., periods when dividend payments have consistently increased annually-of more than 25 years. Let's take a look: Consolidated Edison (ED), or ConEd as it is commonly referred to, has increased its dividend payments in 39 consecutive years. Black Hills Corp (BKH), meanwhile, has grown its dividend in a whopping 43 straight years.
