How to Apply for the Distributed Generation Program
Customers who purchase a renewable generation system for their home or business and wish to connect it to JEA’s power grid must apply for interconnection under the Distributed Generation Policy and follow certain steps to ensure the safety and reliability of the customer and the electric grid.

DER Interconnection Requirements
All parallel operating DER interconnections in the JEA electric service territory shall meet the technical interconnection requirements stated in the Parallel Operations and Interconnection of DER Facilities procedure document.
JEA has a new Interconnection Application platform live as of January 2, 2022. Please see the link below under "Submit Your Application" to access the new Interconnection Application platform called PowerClerk. All Interconnection Applications are now being accepted through PowerClerk. No interconnection applications will be accepted or reviewed from firstname.lastname@example.org any longer.
Interconnection agreements are required for customers that move into a home with an existing PV or PV + Battery system.
