Site description

The City of Jacksonville’s St. John’s River Power Park is in Jacksonville, Florida along the St. John’s River in Duval County. This coal-fired plant began operations in 1987 and could produce 1,264-MW total capacity of electricity with two units. In 2017, the two joint owners of the St. John’s Plant, the Jacksonville Electric Authority and the Florida Power and Light Company, decided to retire and demolish the two outdated coal-fired units. The City of Jacksonville now manages the property, with plans to fully demolish, level and resell the property in the future. St. John’s has two unlined ash ponds and three unlined landfills onsite that are no longer receiving CCR material but are regulated under the CCR rule. You can find the industry-reported data here.
