Battery Incentive Program
JEA offers a rebate to help rooftop solar customers take the next step toward home energy independence: battery storage. The Battery Incentive Program aims to encourage renewable energy adoption by making this technology more affordable for our customers.
- Provides $4,000 rebate per home/business on the purchase of a qualified battery storage system.*
- Rebate amount are subject to change after first 50 participants.
- Customers may also be eligible for a 30% federal tax credit for their battery storage system (after rebate applied).
- Only JEA customers with approved renewable generation systems will qualify to receive the rebate.
Why a Battery?
Currently, JEA customers with rooftop solar panels must rely on JEA’s electric grid to provide energy when their solar panels don’t produce enough power to meet the home or business’s energy needs. When the solar panels generate more energy than is needed, the excess is sent to JEA.
When excess energy flows from the customer’s PV system back to the JEA grid, JEA values that energy at the fuel rate. With the addition of a battery, customers can store the excess energy generated by their solar PV system and draw on it as needed – maintaining the full retail value of that energy and reducing their need to receive electricity from the grid.
Before Installing a Battery
Prior to installing a new solar system with battery storage, JEA customers must apply for interconnection by completing JEA's Distributed Generation Application and Interconnection Agreement. The application and interconnection agreement must be submitted for approval to JEA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Customers with existing solar PV systems under the Distributed Generation Policy who wish to add a battery system only need to submit
JEA’s Application for Interconnection of Distributed Generation System.
An electrical permit will be required prior to an installation of a battery storage system. Please contact your retailer or your local permitting agency for more information.
*Battery qualifications can be found on the Battery Incentive Rebate Form. Please note: Solar PV customers grandfathered under JEA’s previous Net Metering Policy who choose to take advantage of JEA’s battery incentive will no longer be grandfathered, and thereafter will be subject to the Distributed Generation Policy.
