Rates

 
Item

Our rates are designed to cover the cost of operating your electric, water and sewer utilites and to pay down the debt for money borrowed to expand and improve our infrastructure. Our rates also cover current state and federal regulations. Utility service is a complicated and costly business. We work hard to be responsible stewards of your business and the environment, while bringing you the most reliable service possible.

How Our Prices Compare

Currently our prices are below average for the state. And you may not realize it, but your JEA bill is about 12% less today than it was six years ago, when adjusted for inflation.
