How JEA SolarSmart will Affect Your Bill

JEA SolarSmart will be billed “at cost” to customers, which is how we bill for the fuel used to generate electricity. The pricing for JEA SolarSmart will be higher than JEA’s Fuel Charge due to JEA's higher cost of solar energy. Depending on your JEA SolarSmart selection, you will receive a Fuel Charge refund for your percentage of solar energy and will be charged for your percentage of JEA SolarSmart energy.  

Below is an example of how a JEA SolarSmart charge will appear on your bill. Billing amounts are based off of the customer using 1,000 kWh and electing 50% of their energy to come from JEA SolarSmart.
