Why do I need this bond?
Utility deposit bonds in Louisiana are put in place to ensure that principals (utility customers) pay their utility bills on time and in full. If a customer accrues a balance for utility services received, the bond protects the utility company from financial loss up to the full amount of the bond. The principal, in turn, must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
