JEA considering $106.6 million solar deal

Jacksonville Daily Record

The JEA board of directors is considering a $106.6 million agreement to buy 150 megawatts of solar power produced by Florida Power & Light as utility leaders consider expanding in-house solar generation.

Board members voted unanimously to advance the solar deal Dec. 16 during a joint committee meeting.

If approved by the full board, JEA would purchase the power from FPL through The Energy Authority, which is negotiating the deal between the two utilities.
