JEA’s Plan and Fossil Fuel Dependence

Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA) recently developed an Electrical Integrated Resource Plan (EIRP) to delineate how it will produce and deliver electricity over a 10-15 year period. The plan was developed with the assistance of an engineering consulting company with input from an IRP Stakeholder Advisory Committee. This is a description of what was problematic about the EIRP and potential ramifications.

JEA Needs More Solar Energy Sources

While many other utilities are rapidly transitioning to clean, renewable energy sources, JEA is almost fully reliant on highly-polluting fossil fuels for energy generation. JEA needs to begin a brisk and substantial transition to clean, renewable energy sources to capitalize on many financial and economic opportunities.
