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.
