Embracing Solar Energy
JEA has been leading the way for clean energy in Jacksonville since the 1990s, when we installed solar panel arrays on dozens of schools, businesses and at Jacksonville International Airport. Building upon this clean energy leadership, JEA has recently expanded its solar initiatives, providing a range of solar energy options for residential customers, local businesses and the community as a whole.

Conserving Our Water Supply
Our water supply comes from the pristine Floridan aquifer. However, this resource is not a never-ending supply. As JEA works to provide the water our customers demand, we know that conservation of this precious natural resource is the best way to ensure
it lasts. Conservation today helps JEA and our customers avoid the high cost of finding and implementing alternative water sources.

Reclaimed Water for Irrigation
JEA began its reclaimed water program in 1999 as a method to reduce discharge of treated effluent into the St. Johns River and to offset high quality groundwater withdrawal. In 14 years, JEA’s reclaimed water use increased from 1 million gallons per day
to 15 million gallons per day.

Boil Water Advisories
When a water outage occurs, JEA is required to issue boil water advisories. An outage is defined as a drop in pressure below 20 psi in a JEA water transmission line. Outages can be caused by a break in a water main pipe, during planned repair or construction activities, or by unintentional accidents.
