JEA Electric Utility Complaint

This is an action for declaratory judgment and injunctive relief challenging the legality of JEA’s Distributed Energy Policy, effective April 1, 2018, (“JEA’s Energy Policy”), attached hereto as Exhibit A, which fails to provide a net metering program as required by Florida law. Plaintiffs Community Power Network Corporation (d/b/a Solar United Neighbors) and the League of Women Voters of Florida, Inc., sue Defendant JEA, a Florida municipal electric utility, to enforce state law and to prevent the destruction of rooftop solar expansion in the Jacksonville area. Plaintiffs seek a declaration from the Court that JEA’s Energy Policy violates Florida law and an injunction directing JEA to provide a net metering program.
