JEA is located in Jacksonville, Florida, where we proudly serve an estimated 447,000 electric, 329,000 water and 254,000 sewer customers.Northeast Florida’s Not-For-Profit, Community-Owned Utility
JEA is not owned by investors. It was created by the City of Jacksonville to serve those who live here and in the surrounding communities. The sole purpose of our business is to ensure the electric, water and sewer demands of our customers are met, both today and for generations to come. Our goal is to provide reliable services at the best value to our customers while ensuring our areas’ precious natural resources are protected.
Approximately 47 percent of JEA’s electric revenues come from our 450,000 residential customers, 50 percent from 48,000 commercial and industrial customers and three percent from one wholesale customer. The commercial and industrial market segments also account for about one-third of the water and wastewater revenue.Electric System
JEA owns and operates an Electric System with five generating plants, and all transmission and distribution facilities, including over 745 miles of transmission lines and more than 6,500 miles of distribution lines.
JEA is also a joint owner with Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) of a sixth power plant, the St. Johns River Power Park (SJRPP), which is operated by JEA. We also receive 9.6 megawatts of methane-generated power from Trail Ridge Landfill and 12.6-megawatts of energy from a 100-acre solar project on the Westside that contains 200,000 solar panels. In 2013, JEA generated 12.5 million megawatt hours of energy.Water and Sewer Systems
JEA’s Water System consists of 134 artesian wells that tap into the Floridan aquifer. Water is distributed through 37 water treatment plants and over 4,300 miles of water lines. In fiscal year 2015 JEA counted 329,000 water customers.
Wastewater is collected through more than 3,800 miles of wastewater collection lines and is treated at seven regional treatment plants. In fiscal year 2015, JEA counted 254,000 wastewater customers.
JEA is committed to improving the water quality of the St. Johns River. Our Reclaimed Water System supplies highly-treated water for irrigation. It reduces the amount of nitrogen released to the river because the treatment-enhanced wastewater isn’t put back into the river. Using reclaimed water for irrigation also reduces the demand on the potable water supply taken from the Floridan aquifer. JEA uses 212 miles of reclaimed water lines to distribute reclaimed water to some 6,500 reclaimed water customers.
