Rates

Utilities across the country are facing challenging times - increasing fuel prices, increasing environmental regulations, and extreme weather. JEA is faced with some of those same challenges, but we are doing everything we can to keep rates low and stable.

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. In 2015, customers received a credit on their bill for the third year in a row. We were able to gain substantial savings on the fuel we use to generate electricity, so we are again returning those savings to you.

SmartSavings helps residential electric customers control their bill by avoiding electric usage during Peak Hours and alternating use of major appliances.

JEA SolarSmart offers an alternative to private rooftop solar for customers who have an interest in environmental-friendly, renewable energy.

January 2016 Fuel Charge Decrease

On January 19, 2016 the JEA Board approved a Fuel Charge decrease of $6.85 per megawatt hour with an effective date of February 1, 2016. This reduction translates to a 5.56% decrease in the electric portion of a 1,000 kWH a month residential customer’s bill and lowers JEA electric rates to the 2008 level. Commercial customers should receive a 6-9% decrease depending on rate class.

JEA is a municipal or community-owned utility. Our rates are designed to cover the cost of operating your electric, water and sewer business and to pay down the debt for money borrowed to expand and improve the pipes and wires we use to send electricity and water to your home, and for the pipes to collect and remove sewer from your home. Our rates also cover current state and federal regulations. There are additional regulations that could have an impact on rates in the next decade, because compliance with these regulations could cost JEA up to $1 billion.

Utility service is a complicated and costly business. We want you to know that we work hard to be responsible stewards of your business and the environment, while bringing you the most reliable service possible.

Effective Dates of Rates:

  • Electric Base: January 1, 2012
  • Electric Fuel: November 15, 2016
