Electricians in Enterprise, Alabama need to file an Electrical Contractor Bond (or Electrician Bond as it’s also known) in an amount of $5,000 to receive their electrical contractor license. Jet offers this surety bond as assurance to the City of Enterprise that electricians will follow the regulations, guaranteeing the safety and welfare of the public.
Within minutes, you’ll be able to purchase your Electrician Bond with Jet’s quick, online application!
You can purchase your Electrician Bond for just $10 a month or $100 a year with Jet! If you prefer to pay for multiple years all at once, Jet has 2-year and 3-year options available as well. Check below to find preferred credit tier rates.
Jet keeps pricing low by cutting out middlemen who sell bonds at a higher rate to offset the price of their own commissions.
The Electrician Bond is a way for the City of Enterprise to protect itself and its citizens from electrical contractors who endanger the public with negligent, unsafe electrical installation. This ties in with the City’s responsibility to protect its property owners, tenants, and homeowners and their health and safety. For example, an electrician overdoes the amperage leading to electrical shock of a client. The bond may be used for the harm caused to the client.
Applying for your Electrician Bond is easy through Jet’s application. We have trimmed down the process to only ask for the information needed for bond issuance, such as general business and contact information. Once this is complete, simply choose the bond term that you would like and finish your bond purchase. You will receive an emailed copy of your bond and a receipt for your records.
Once you have completed your purchase, Jet will go ahead and complete the bond form and mail it directly to the City of Enterprise. If you need to file the bond yourself (for your initial license application, perhaps), you can choose to have the original bond mailed to you during checkout.
The original bond, and any other paperwork, can be mailed to:
City of Enterprise
PO Box 311000
Enterprise, AL 36331
If you need to cancel your Electrician Bond, send a written request to Jet right away. An email to [email protected] will work! Our team will notify the City of Enterprise right away, starting the 30-day cancellation period. Once the bond is fully cancelled, Jet will calculate if any remaining time on the bond (excluding the additional 30 days the bond is active) can be refunded.
For monthly payments, you must also send Jet a notice so our team can request cancellation from the City and begin the 30-day cancellation period. Since each payment that is made keeps your bond active for the upcoming month, a refund will not be applicable.
When it is nearing the end of your Electrical Contractor Bond term, Jet will send you a renewal notice through mail and email. Keep your bond current by paying the renewal premium through the link in the email or by filling out and mailing back the notice. Once the payment is processed, Jet will take care of the renewal; you don’t have to worry about any additional paperwork.
If you are participating in the monthly payment plan, renewal isn’t needed! Your bond stays active with each payment that is received, until you decide to cancel the bond or payment is missed.
Claims against the Electrical Contractor Bond can be prevented by making sure that you stay grounded in the regulations found in the Section for Electrical Contractors in the Enterprise Code of Ordinances. This includes making sure that you are altering, repairing, or maintaining electrical wiring safely, installing electrical power or control systems in a secure manner, and only using the license that is in your name.
If any complaints occur, it is your responsibility to rectify the situation at the first notice. By fixing the problem right away, it would prevent any administrative actions by the City prescribed in Section 6-51 of the Enterprise Code of Ordinances. You may receive a fine between $1 and $500, an order to stop work, or your license may be suspended or revoked. You may also receive a claim against your Electrician Bond instead of (or in addition to) the administrative actions.
As soon as you receive a claim notice on your Enterprise Electrician Bond, you must let the Jet team know. Our claims team will reach out to you and the claimant, collecting all relevant information. During this time, you should be truthful and responsive to communications as the investigation assesses the validity of the claim.
If your actions have generated a valid claim, Jet is obligated to pay the claimant up to the full $5,000 limit of the bond. Once the payout has occurred, your bond will not meet the requirements necessary for the electrical contractor license. You must pay Jet back to restore the bond and avoid license complications.
