Java Energy will be a solar and battery energy storage facility, designed to reduce local blackouts and voltage problems due to aging grid infrastructure in the Town of Java. It will include 5 megawatts (MW) of lead-acid batteries, 1 MW of lithium-ion batteries, and 1.5 MW of solar panels, occupying approximately 7.5 acres of land.

The Company requests IDA incentives for exemption of sales tax on construction materials and non-production equipment, a mortgage recording tax exemption, and a deviated PILOT agreement for abatement of property tax. Approximate value of these incentives is expected to be more than $100,000; therefore, a public hearing was held on March 8, 2018.
