Net metering is a metering and billing program that allows customers with renewable generation systems to buy and sell electricity to and from their utility.
JEA customers who install approved renewable generation systems to their home or business and are connecting to JEA’s grid are required to participate in JEA’s Net Metering Program. This program allows customers to offset the amount of energy they need to buy from JEA by generating their own renewable electricity. By participating in the Net Metering Program a customer is able to buy electricity when their renewable generation system is not producing enough energy to meet the demand in their home/business and to sell their excess generation to JEA’s grid when they are producing more than needed.
JEA’s net metering program allows customers with renewable generation systems to connect to JEA’s electric grid to easily transfer electricity to and from the grid. Learn more about net metering and how JEA’s program works.
