Fuel Credit

When market conditions allow, we are proud to give our electric customers a fuel credit on their bill.

JEA’s use of a diverse fuel mix allows us to switch to the lowest cost fuel to generate electricity. This flexibility generates a fuel-cost savings, and when we save, our customers save.

In May 2020, JEA returned $27 million in fuel credit rebates to electric customers.

How We Determine Your Fuel Credit

Once JEA’s Board of Directors approves a fuel credit, the total amount to be returned to customers is divided by the projected total kilowatt hours used by all customers in a certain billing period. This determines the amount of credit per kilowatt hour. The amount of each customer’s credit is then based on the number of kilowatt hours of electricity a customer used in this billing period multiplied by the credit per kilowatt hour. 

Calculating Your Credit

Total Fuel Credit dollars ($60 million/October 2015) 
 1,041,712,758 kilowatt hours (historical median consumption for all JEA customers in October)
$0.05765 per kilowatt hour

Customers can further determine their fuel credit by multiplying the kilowatt hours on their bill for October 2015 by $0.05765. For example, in October, if a meter showed a customer used 1,000 kWh:

1,000 kWh

$57.65 Fuel Credit/October 2015 Fuel Credit

It’s always great to receive a credit on your bill when you aren’t expecting it. And we know our customers have enjoyed the Fuel Credit in the past. We also like returning these savings to customers and will to do it again in the years ahead if the cost of fuel allows.
