Site Plans Filed For JEA's Westlake Solar Array
A San Diego-based renewable energy company under contract with JEA filed site plans Sept. 22 for Westlake Solar Array, a 50-megawatt solar farm in West Jacksonville.
The EDF Renewables Distributed Solutions Inc. project is part of a purchase power agreement with the city-owned utility to build and operate five solar farms by late 2022 producing 250 megawatts of electricity, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.
JEA expects construction on the five projects to begin in late 2021.
EDF will build the solar farm through Westlake Solar Partners LLC on 947.14 acres of JEA-owned land bordered by Pritchard, Lazy J and Fish roads.
