Northside Generating Station (NGS) Boilers 1 and 2 were natural and fuel oil fired plants that were repowered as circulating fluidized bed coal-burning plants (297.5 MW each).[1] The plant is owned by JEA (formerly Jacksonville Electric Authority), located in Jacksonville, Florida, which faced questions in 2010, when the plant's coal ash ended up in environmentally sensitive Clay County wetlands.[2]
