Media company adds to its on-site renewable portfolio

Media company Cox Enterprises have announced the installation of five fuel cells at its Cox Communications subsidiary in San Diego.

The fuel cells join nine previous alternative energy projects in the state. Combined, Cox's 14 alternative energy installations in California annually prevent 15,500 tons of carbon emissions from entering the environment, the equivalent of removing 367 cars from the road.

The new fuel cells in San Diego include two 200kW units that power 100 per cent of Cox Communications facility on Copley Drive and three 200kW units that power 90 per cent of its building on N. Cuyamaca Street.

"Twenty-five per cent of Cox Communications' electricity in California is now being generated through our alternative energy projects," said Steve Bradley, Cox Enterprises' director of energy, alternative energy and business continuity. "These projects yield positive results for the environment and the bottom line."
