JEA is proud of its Electric System and its reputation as one of the nation’s exemplary municipal service providers. Our existing generation capacity is 3,747 MWs and our generation fleet contains a diverse resource mix that includes two thirds natural gas. The remaining generation comes from coal, petcoke and renewables such as solar and methane gas.
We look forward to adding nuclear power to our generation mix in 2019 – 2020 when Southern Company’s Plant Vogtle Units 3 and 4 – currently under construction – will come online. JEA has entered into a 20-year power purchase agreement with the Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia (MEAG) for a portion of the plant’s output, which when ready, will supply 130,000 Jacksonville homes with power and provide 13 percent of JEA’s annual energy production. Because nuclear power is truly carbon-free, Vogtle will mean cleaner air – it’s like removing more than 90,000 cars from Jacksonville roads each year.
Our Electric Business
JEA’s diverse electric generation fleet allows us to fine-tune our generation strategy based on the price of natural gas, petcoke or coal. This agility helps keep prices low for our customers.
