Battery Incentive Program


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 solar 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 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 via JEA's interconnection portal PowerClerk.

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 within PowerClerk.

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.

Please Note

A new Battery Incentive Program is currently being designed for Fiscal Year 2023.

*Please note: Solar PV customers grandfathered under JEA’s previous Net Metering Policy who choose to take advantage of any JEA battery incentive will no longer be grandfathered and thereafter will be transferred to the Distributed Generation Policy.
