Why do I need this bond?
New Jersey generation service bonds ensure that the principal (gas supply service or electric generation service) will conduct ethical business by fulfilling all of its obligated services and other contractual commitments. The principal must adhere to the Electric Discount and Energy Competition Act (N.J.S.A. 48:3-49 et seq).
This bond protects any entity or person who suffers damages or losses due to the principal failing to pay taxes or breaching his or her contract.
