Did you open your utility bill this month and notice a significant change from last month? Does your bill seem higher than usual during this time of year? It’s important to know when you have a bill spike, its a warning sign that something in your home has changed, you have changed your habits, or weather has impacted your usage. Understanding what can cause a high bill is the first step to diagnosing it.

Ever wonder why it’s the end of the month, and you haven’t received a bill yet? That’s because of JEA’s billing cycles. A billing cycle is the elapsed time between printings of a customer’s monthly bills. When a JEA customer starts service, his/her account is assigned to one of twenty billing cycles, which are assigned based on the customer’s location. Bills are prepared for one cycle each work night. The exact number of days between bills may vary from month to month, depending on when weekends and holidays occur during the month. As a result, and unlike credit card companies, payments are not due and bills are not generated on weekends and holidays.
