Your monthly electricity bills are calculated by multiplying the amount of electricity you use each month by the per-unit cost of electricity. During the summer, Central Florida’s high temperatures and humidity can drive up electricity usage, leading to higher bills.

As your utility provider, we want you to know that you have the power to manage your electric bills. We understand that rising bills can create financial challenges, and even hardships, which is why we want you to know what resources are available.

A great place to start is by logging onto the KUA customer portal at where you can track your electricity use in weekly, daily or 15-minute increments, helping identify potential avenues for reducing costs in your home or business. You can also make payment arrangements through our new customer portal. Watch this video to learn more about how our customer portal can help you track your energy consumption.

We also encourage you to ensure you’re taking all the necessary steps to help reduce your energy consumption and keep track of your payments.
