MyWay Pay-As-You-Go Billing

JEA MyWay is just like putting gas in your car. JEA MyWay lets you buy the utility service you need for the utilities you’re about to use. Customers who participate in prepaid utility programs like JEA MyWay tend to reduce their consumption because they are more aware of how they are using their utilities.  

  • Pay as little or as much as you wish, whenever you want. 
  • No late fees or deposit required.
  • No reconnection fees for electric service.*
  • No credit check.
  • No prepaid fees or charges.
  • No more surprises on your monthly bill. 

*Reconnection fees may apply for water service.

JEA MyWay is a great option for anyone, especially those who do not like to pay for utility services monthly. It’s also good for college students, those who travel a lot, or environmentally conscious consumers who like to keep their consumption in mind. It’s especially good for someone who wants to avoid a deposit.

Make the Switch to JEA MyWay

If you have an existing JEA account and wish to switch to MyWay, we can help! Visit us in person at our Downtown Customer Care Center or call us and speak to a representative. You will need about 30 minutes to complete the process. 

If you have an existing deposit, it will be credited to your account and any remainder will go toward your new MyWay account. That way your money can go to work for you right away. If you have an outstanding balance you might need to pay it down before you can join the program. 

At this time, net metering customers are not eligible to enroll in the JEA MyWay Program.

Return to Traditional Billing if it Doesn't Work Out

If you want to return to traditional services, no problem. Just speak to a JEA customer care representative. You may be required to pay a deposit before the switch is made. 

How Does JEA MyWay Work?

You will not receive a monthly bill. When you sign up for MyWay, you are automatically given a account. A username and password is provided upon enrollment. When money is added to the account, service is automatically turned on. If the account runs out of money, your service is automatically turned off. 

Through your account or the MyUsage mobile app, you can: 

  • View the estimated days left of your account balance 
  • View how much energy and water you’ve used
  • View how much money is left in your account
  • Receive updated account balance every day (via email, text, or phone – your choice)
  • Receive alerts when your account funds are low so you know to add money
