Why are utility deposit bonds required?
Utility bonds help ensure that customers pay their utility bills in full and on time. Whereas most surety bonds function to protect consumers, utility bonds protect utility companies, ensuring that the company receives payment.
If a bonded client fails to pay a utility bill appropriately, the utility company can make a claim on the bond. If the claim is validated, the customer is required to reimburse the surety company in full for any claims paid.
