JEA board approves $106.6 million solar deal

Jacksonville Daily Record

JEA will have access to 150 megawatts of solar power produced by Florida Power & Light Co. through a five-year agreement with public power service organization The Energy Authority.

The board of directors for Jacksonville’s city-owned utility voted unanimously for the $106.6 million solar agreement as part of its Jan. 24 meeting consent agenda.

TEA, an organization that provides services for public power companies, negotiated the deal between the two utilities that is meant to partially replace 250 megawatts of solar power JEA was expecting from contracts with EDF Renewables North America Inc. that were canceled in July.
