Tour the Northside Generating Station Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA)
The tour will be focused on safety while visiting the JEA facility. A description of the facility is as follows:
NGS is located in north Jacksonville in an environmentally sensitive area surrounded by wetlands. NGS is one of the three power plants owned and operated by JEA, Jacksonville’s municipal utilities service. It produces electricity by burning coal and petroleum coke at Units 1 and 2, formerly the largest circulating fluidized-bed combustors, (CFBs), in the world. These combustors, completed in 2002 and rated at 297.5 megawatts each produce enough electricity to light more than 250,000 households. In addition, Unit ST3 produces 505 megawatts of electricity by burning residual fuel oil and/or natural gas.
There will be two tours offered on Monday March 7, 2022. The first tour will leave the hotel at 7:15 AM with the tour beginning at 8:00 AM. The second bus will leave the hotel lobby at 9:15 AM with the tour beginning at 10:00 AM.
