JEA Accepting Free Charging Station Applications


Jacksonville, FL - In a joint effort to promote electric drive, JEA and the North Florida Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) are seeking local businesses, non-profit agencies, and government entities in JEA’s service territory to apply for the award of a publicly accessible plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) charging station to be installed, owned and operated by the applicant on their property. These charging stations will be part of the North Florida TPO’s new Northeast Florida charging station network called ChargeWell and provide electric vehicle drivers area-wide opportunity to plug in.

Each award will be for one Level Two (220V) charging station and include the total cost of equipment plus installation costs up to a maximum of $7,500. The total number of awards is dependent on the amount of pledged funds and total grant funds available of $300,000.

Applications will be accepted across the JEA service territory through March 30, 2015*. All applications will be evaluated by the North Florida Clean Fuels Coalition’s Electric Vehicle (EV) working group. The EV working group will score and rank all applications to provide final determination of charging station awards. Once the application process is complete, JEA will seek charging station vendors via an RFP process to provide equipment and installation. This RFP process will provide the final number of awards against available Congestion, Mitigation, Air Quality Program (CMAQ) funds.

Applications will be evaluated and scored (100 point scale) based on the following criteria:

  • Location in one of 10 zones
    • Max 20pts -- closer to center of zone
  • Interest in Electric Vehicles
    • Max 10pts -- provide narrative
  • Visibility from public street
    • Max 10pts -- if highly visible
  • Weekly hours publicly available
    • Max 10pts -- if available 24/7
  • Why specific EV parking space was chosen
    • Max 10pts -- provide narrative
  • Plan for promotion of EV charging station
    • Max 10pts -- provide narrative
  • Cost share amount
    • Max in each zone 30pts, next 10 applicants receive 20pts through 10pts based on amount pledged

This one-time charging station project is made available through funding from North Florida TPO using CMAQ funds. For more information, go to
