JEA Volunteers Help Build Community

2012-03-29

Jacksonville, FL - Fifty JEA employees are doing their part to build community in New Town, as part of the HabiJax New Town Blitz Build.

JEA employees have volunteered during the six-day project to build 12 new homes. In addition, JEA will present each homeowner at the dedication ceremony with an energy monitor, a device that lets the new homeowners track the amount of electricity they use, as well as the costs, in real time. It will help them reduce not only their energy consumption, but also their monthly bills.

New Town is one of JEA’s targeted areas to help current homeowners lower their monthly utility bill through JEA’s Neighborhood Energy Efficiency program. The program, which includes the installation of $350 worth of conservation products free of charge, targets energy-inefficient homes.

HabiJax is the local branch of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit organization with a goal to eliminate substandard housing in Jacksonville by building and promoting high quality, affordable housing that enhances neighborhoods and communities.

JEA is the eighth-largest community-owned electric utility in the United States and one of the largest water and sewer utilities in the nation providing electric, water and sewer service to more than 875,000 accounts in northeast Florida.
