Our Electric Generation Strategy

JEA is proud of its Electric System and its reputation as one of the nation’s exemplary municipal service providers. As of January 2018, our existing generation capacity is 3,330 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 2021 – 2022 when Southern Company’s Plant Vogtle Units 3 and 4, currently under construction, are scheduled to 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 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.
