Billing Questions

What is the “non-taxable fuel amount” printed on my electric bill statement?

Under Chapter 166.231 of the Florida Statutes, the State of Florida allows a municipal or county government to implement a public service tax (sometimes referred to as a "utility" or "municipal" tax) on the purchase of electricity.

Under statutory guidelines, the increase in the cost of fuel to the utility after October 1, 1973 must be excluded from the amount taxed. Therefore, the amount identified on the bill as "non-taxable fuel" represents Clay Electric’s excludable fuel cost when calculating the public service tax.

What is the Access Charge item on my electric bill?

The Access Charge (formerly Customer Charge) is the component of a member's bill that recovers some of the fixed costs that come directly from serving an individual member, regardless of how much electricity is used. These costs include the cost of the meter, wire and other equipment used to deliver electricity to the home or business, as well as billing expenses such as meter reading, bill preparation and postage.
