Comet Electric is a natural gas company based in the Adirondack Mountains, near Albany.
Comet features prominently in Mr. Robot's original plan of attack against Steel Mountain. Using Elliot Alderson's Allsafe access, fsociety would gain access to Comet's pipeline controls, increasing pressure and causing an explosion that would destroy E Corp's tape backups. Elliot refuses to follow through with this plan, unwilling to jeopardize workers and civilians in the blast area.(“eps1.1_ones-and-zer0es.mpeg”)
In the aftermath of the Five/Nine Hack, union workers at Comet Electric go on strike. (“eps2.0_unm4sk-pt1.tc”) The resulting energy shortage contributes to rolling blackouts across the northeast United States. (“eps2.7_init5.fve”)
