New applicants must post $250,000 bonds, but the security level for each licensee will be reviewed after the first year to see if the amount can be modified based on the licensee’s reported annual gross receipts information. In some cases, a bond amount of $10,000 can be posted. Please verify with the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission which bond amount you need.

Why this bond

The bond states that the supplier will not provide misinformation of any kind when supplying energy services to its customers. It also protects customers from damages suffered as a result of the supplier’s unethical and unlawful business practices.
