Right-Size Your Meal Prep

Large appliances like ovens use lots of energy to create heat.

For smaller meals, choose crockpots or InstaPots. Or if the weather's nice, head out back and fire up your charcoal grill.

Prepare multiple meals in batches and store in the refrigerator or freezer. Batch cooking will save you prep time during the week and reduce the load on your appliances.

Prepare Appliances for Prolonged Power Outages

Because storms are considered acts of nature, JEA is not responsible for spoilage of refrigerated or frozen items. Buy canned goods, not perishable items, and keep food stored in freezers to a minimum during storm season.

If you do keep items in your refrigerator or freezer, adjust their temperature settings to the highest (coldest) levels to reduce the risk of spoilage during a power outage.

Store Fresh Water

If you’re sheltering at home, store water in sealable containers for drinking and bathing. You can also capture water in your water heater by turning off power to the unit, then close the water valves. If you lose water pressure, you’ll still have 40 gallons of fresh water in the tank.

Evacuating? Turn off water at your home’s main service valve.

Prepare Food Before the Storm

If you’ve got a lot of perishable food in your refrigerator and freezer, a great idea is to cook and store it before the storm arrives. You can take it with you if you evacuate or use it if riding out the storm. This will ensure you have enough food should the power go out and can also limit potential spoilage. Find more storm prep tips at jea.com.

Gather Battery-Powered Tools to Ride Out the Storm

If you decide to stay home, check battery-powered flashlights and radios and make sure they have fresh batteries should they be needed for prolonged periods without power.

icon image

Report Your Outage at the Right Time

JEA accepts individual outage reports during Phase 2 of our Restoration 1-2-3 process, when our crews restore power to individual “circuits” which can include thousands of homes. At that point, call (904) 665-6000 or visit jea.com/outage to report your outage.

Ever wonder why your neighbors have power and you don’t? A single street may be served by different sections of the electric grid – known as circuits – each of which provides electricity to a different group of homes on that street. So it’s not uncommon for neighborhoods to experience a mixture of power availability.

icon image

Dealing with Downed Trees

While JEA is responsible for removing downed electric lines caused by tree damage on your property, the homeowner is responsible for removing downed trees on private property, including those leaning on structures.

For trees, limbs and other debris obstructing roadways, please call the City of Jacksonville’s Department of Public Works at (904) 630-CITY.
