Why do I need this bond?

Utility bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (utility customers) pay all utility bills on time and in full. If the customer fails to do this, a claim can be filed against the bond. If the claim is proven, the surety will reimburse the utility for all sums due up to the full bond amount. The principal will then reimburse the surety for damages paid out.
