Bill Explanation

At JEA, we want to make doing business with us as easy as possible. That’s why we’ve simplified your bill!

Color-coded sections allow you to easily find the important details you need. New graphs and improved charts will help you better understand your utility usage. We’ve also added a helpful QR code so you can view and pay your bill from your mobile device if you choose.

Whether you get your bill online or in the mail, you’ll see the new designs on bills that print in February. Click the links below to see the features of your new bill.
