Cable, Internet and Energy Services?

Comcast is the market leader in broadband Internet services, controlling a 56 percent share of the market, according to Ars Technica. The company also boasts 30 million cable subscribers, according to CNN Money. But now the company is entering a seemingly different business based on running wires to customer homes and businesses: energy services. Comcast just announced a partnership with Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) in Illinois to offer demand response (DR) services to customers in ComEd’s service territory, reports Greentech Media. Comcast’s DR program, Xfinity Home Summer Energy Management, runs on the EcoFactor energy management platform.

In addition to DR services, Comcast has partnered with retail energy suppliers. A March 2014 article in Multichannel explains how the company collaborated with NRG Energy on an energy rewards pilot. Comcast is now partnering with Everyday Energy to offer the program to Xfinity customers in Pennsylvania and Illinois, writes Multichannel News.
