MyWay Pay-As-You-Go Billing

JEA MyWay is a great option for all customers, especially those who prefer to prepay for services vs being billed monthly. It is a great option 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.

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. Unlike traditional service accounts, MyWay Customers have access to daily balance information thereby eliminating the need for paper statements.  

  • 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.

How Does JEA MyWay Work?

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. 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.  

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

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

Balance Calculations

As with all of JEA’s Customers, MyWay account holders pay for their consumption and the cost of service, which includes a Basic Monthly Charge, fees, and taxes. After calculating usage, charges, and fees, MyWay Customers’ prepaid account balances are adjusted daily. Accounts may be adjusted monthly to reconcile the prepaid account balance with JEA’s actual cost of service. Reconciliation occurs following the Customer’s monthly billing cycle. Balance information is available 24 hours-a-day through the Customer’s online JEA account,, or by phone.

Debt Recovery

JEA may review a Customer’s account for debt recovery through prepaid service only if a variance of $750.00 or less remains after all deposits and credits are applied. Additionally, no less than 25% of all payments will be applied to the debt until the balance is eliminated. 

*Reconnection fees may apply for water service.
