A surety bond helps keeps the cost of utility services down!
How? It’s a domino effect, really. A customer who fails to pay his or her bills will affect the rest of the utility company’s customers.
A surety bond as a financial deposit will protect the rest of the customers from any additional charges.
A Utility bond is required by Entergy Arkansas, Inc. prior to providing a service. The surety bond will serve as a guarantee or a deposit in case the Principal or the person who applied for a utility service defaults from his or her obligation such as paying the bill on time or leaves without paying.
When this happens, the utility company will file for financial claims on the surety bond, up to its penal sum.
