High voltage electrical contractors design, install, and maintain networks of electrical systems that are over 600 volts. The systems transfer energy from power stations, grids or substations to wherever electricity is needed.

Contractor licensing requirements vary by state, city, or municipality, and can include submitting an application, passing examinations, documenting practical experience, and providing financial information. High voltage electrical contractors may need to obtain a payment and performance surety bond as a contract requirement.

Surety Bond Requirement

A surety bond is a legal contract between three parties:

  • An obligee: the project owner who requires the bond
  • The principal: the contractor who must purchase the bond
  • The surety: the insurance surety company that issues the bond

A contract can hold a contractor to specific items such as budgets, paying suppliers and laborers, time for completion, and the type of work to be done. A surety bond guarantees that a project will be completed as stated in the contract.

If the contractor fails his obligations, then the project owner may submit a claim on the bond to the surety company. If the surety finds that the contractor is at fault, then the surety assumes responsibility and will see that the project is completed. The contractor is then obligated to reimburse the surety for the work done or payments made.

What Will This Bond Cost?

The premium you pay for a high voltage electrical contract payment and performance surety bond depends on factors such as the bond amount, plus personal and business financial statements. Contact our Surety Bond Specialists for a free quote that fits your specific situation.
