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, the provider 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 Duke Electric and must be renewed annually. The surety can cancel this bond at any time by delivering written notice 90 days before the termination date.
