MyBudget Levelized Billing

JEA MyBudget is a levelized payment plan that evens out your monthly utility bill by taking a rolling average of your last 12 bills. The rolling average makes your utility bill payment about the same amount each month, making budgeting for it a little easier. JEA MyBudget is a great option if you live on a fixed income, don’t like seasonal bill fluctuations, or you want a more predictable utility bill from month-to-month. 

Plus, during the JEA Power of Thanks Giveaway, it’s in your power to be automatically entered to win a $500 Apple or Amazon gift card just by being enrolled in JEA MyBudget by May 31st.

How JEA MyBudget Works

  • Your MyBudget payment will include all services provided to you by JEA, electric, water and sewer, and will include all service addresses in your name.
  • Although your MyBudget payments will be about the same each month, you should expect your payment to fluctuate slightly from month to month.
  • Your actual consumption and your MyBudget payment will differ. Consumption is typically higher than your MyBudget payment in the summer and winter and is typically lower than your MyBudget payment in the spring and fall. This means there may be times that your MyBudget payment is more or less than you are actually using, as shown in the graph below.
  • While enrolled in JEA MyBudget, you will accrue an account balance that represents the difference between your monthly consumption and your MyBudget payment. Your account balance may be positive or negative, usually dependent on the season and your consumption, and will be credited or collected if you should unenroll from the MyBudget program. This is illustrated in graph below.
  • It’s best to stay on the JEA MyBudget program for at least one full year so we can use the fall and spring to level out the high usage you typically have in the summer and winter. Please be aware you may be removed from JEA MyBudget if you do not pay your bill by the due date each month.
  • If you are currently enrolled in JEA MyBudget and would like to unenroll, please sign into your account and follow the prompts to unenroll. 
MyBudget Graph
Graph illustrating how the MyBudget program works. 1) Sometimes your MyBudget payment is more than your actual consumption; this will cause your account balance to go down. 2) Sometimes your MyBudget payment is less than your actual consumption; this will cause your account balance to go up. 3) But in the end, your total bill is virtually the same. Any difference may be due to a rounding error.
