How Do Black Hills Energy Utility Deposit Bonds Work? 

A utility deposit surety bond ensures that large utility customers will pay their bills in full and on time. If they fail to do so, Black Hills Energy can file a claim to receive the payment. The surety provider will pay the claim amount and the bondholder must reimburse the surety.

These bonds remain effective until released by Black Hills Energy and must be renewed annually. The surety can cancel this bond at any time by delivering written notice 30 days before the termination date.

Who Needs a Utility Bond? 

Black Hills Energy requires certain high-volume energy users such as manufacturers, restaurants or campgrounds to be bonded before turning on utility services. The company will notify you if you need to purchase a utility deposit bond.
