Clean Energy

We are utilizing the latest clean energy technologies to reduce our carbon footprint across the enterprise. This means investing in clean and renewable energy to power our operations and network.

From data centers to theme parks, we are shifting to solar, wind, and other clean sources of electricity to provide our customers more sustainable connectivity and experiences.
Peter Kiriacoulacos
EVP & Chief Procurement Officer, Comcast

Our clean energy strategy incorporates a range of sourcing solutions across the regions in which we operate, prioritizing investments that bring additional capacity to the grid. This includes long-term direct and virtual power purchase agreements from new renewable energy projects, working with utility companies to secure supply from new planned developments or existing green tariff and retail products, and continuing to invest in on-site solar.

In 2023, Comcast used approximately 1.1 million megawatt-hours (MWh) of clean and renewable energy – approximately 25% of our total enterprise electricity load.

Our clean energy usage decreased from 2022 to 2023 as we transitioned our focus to sourcing from new projects that can help meet future energy needs. We have a number of projects contracted and in the pipeline that will continue to grow our clean energy portfolio. This pipeline depends on many factors beyond our control, including economic and regulatory conditions, supply chain and labor issues, and investment and innovation to close gaps in available technology and infrastructure.

As we look to the future, we will seek to source more clean energy solutions to decrease our carbon footprint.

New England: Comcast entered into an agreement to purchase renewable solar electricity from the Gravel Pit Solar project, currently under construction in East Windsor, Connecticut. When it comes online, the project will power nearly half of Comcast Cable and NBCUniversal operations across New England, representing an annual volume of approximately 111,000 MWh.

Texas: Comcast has been purchasing wind energy from the Foard City Wind Farm to power Comcast Cable’s Houston facility and network operations with approximately 90,000 MWh of clean energy annually.

Michigan: Comcast entered into agreements with Consumers Energy and DTE Energy to purchase renewable wind and solar electricity. When the projects come online, they will power half of Comcast Cable's Michigan operations, representing a combined annual volume of approximately 52,000 MWh.

England: Sky has completed construction of Sky Studios Elstree in Borehamwood, England, which features over 160,000 square feet of solar panels on the roofs of buildings, with any additional energy required also coming from a renewable source.
