JEA Announced Fuel Credit for Customers


JEA customers can expect their next bill to be a little bit lower.

    The JEA Board Tuesday

approved a fuel credit at its monthly meeting.

    JEA Executive Director Paul McElroy says the savings come from a lower than expected cost in natural gas.

The one-time credit will work out to about 35-dollars for the average residential customer. Commercial customers a likely to see about a 2-thousand dollar credit.

The credit will be a boon to the Duval County School Board and the City of Jacksonville which will earn credits of a few hundred thousand dollars.

JEA Customers whose meter is read in late April will see the credit on their May bills.
