A listed substance must be measured for a year and reported if the amount manufactured, processed or used exceeds specific threshold amounts. If this threshold is exceeded, the amount released to land, water and air must be reported. The definition of “released” in right-to-know legislation is very broad. Some examples:
JEA’s environmental performance meets or exceeds all federal, state and local emission requirements. In 1998, the EPA released a report on its assessment of risk associated with living near power plants. The report placed the risk at very low). It further stated that the risk assessment methods used were conservative and thus tend to overestimate risk.
For more than 100 years, JEA has been operating at numerous locations within our community and has never had a chemical release large enough to harm any of our neighbors or customers. JEA is committed to continuing this excellent safety record.

Your electricity is generated by fossil fuels. JEA burns fuel to create
heat, which generates steam that is used to power a turbine. The turbine powers
a generator, which spins a coil of wire surrounded by a magnetic field to create
electricity. The electricity is distributed to our customers' homes and
businesses through power lines. Generating electricity by burning fuels
naturally creates byproducts.
