Miller Electric Center is letting the sun shine on.
The city issued a permit Feb. 24 for the installation of a commercial rooftop solar photovoltaic system at the Jacksonville Jaguars practice performance center under construction next to TIAA Bank Field.
FL Commercial Solar LLC of Jacksonville is the contractor for the almost $1.82 million project at 1 TIAA Bank Field, No. 1.
JinkoSolar, which makes solar panels at AllianceFlorida at Cecil Commerce Center, is the producer of the panels, according to project information filed with the permit.
The plan shows a total module quantity of 2,879.
FL Commercial Solar is led by Andreas Zahariadis.
The Jacksonville Jaguars announced June 13, 2022, that the training and practice facility will be named the Miller Electric Center when it opens in 2023.
The Jaguars and Jacksonville-based Miller Electric Co., an electrical and technology contractor, did not announce the financial commitment Miller is making with the 10-year naming rights agreement.
The construction work began in early 2022 with site clearing, demolition and foundation work followed by vertical construction of the indoor practice field.
The Jaguars and City Council agreed in August 2021 to split the cost of the $120 million, 127,087-square-foot practice, training and team office facility.
The NFL team plans to move team offices; an equipment room; weight training; and medical facilities from the stadium to the performance center.
The facility will have an indoor practice field; two outdoor natural-grass fields with about 2,300 bleacher seats; a team store; and concession facilities.
Jaguars President Mark Lamping called the performance center the first step toward a “stadium of the future” when team owner Shad Khan proposed the facility in June 2021.
Lamping suggested moving the training, practice team office needs out of the stadium would eliminate logistical challenges on a future renovation of TIAA Bank Field.
The mecojax.com site of Miller Electric Co. says Miller Electric Center is on track to open before the 2023 NFL season.
