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. When a solar PV system runs short, customers can draw on their battery’s stored energy, reducing their need to receive electricity from the JEA grid.
