JEA Responds to COJ Request to Disconnect Some Streetlights


Jacksonville, FL - The City of Jacksonville has asked JEA to disconnect some designated streetlights as part of a cost-saving initiative. The City’s Public Works Department selected the lights to minimize the impact to the general public. Most of the streetlights the City has asked JEA to turn off are located along roads in or adjacent to industrial and commercial complexes.

To help customers plan for these city-requested outages, JEA is sending letters to customers in the areas affected by the request and has posted maps on our website at with the specific areas where streetlights will be turned off. Additionally, JEA is marking these lights with a large red and white sticker at eye level near the pole number, and with a strip of red adhesive encircling the top of the pole.

JEA is committed to providing our customers with the most accurate and reliable information and service. The City asks that you email them with any questions at
