The Citizens Utility Board and a consortium of local elected officials is sponsoring a seminar next Thursday in Uptown on how to cut your utility bill though simple energy saving techniques – and how to eliminate some unnecessary charges on your phone bill.
The daytime seminar, is set for Thursday, September 29, 2011 10:00 a.m. to noon at Bridgeview Bank, 1st Floor Conference Room, 4753 N. Broadway St.
From CUB’s release:
A CUB study has estimated that Illinois callers could be overpaying by more than $1 billion a year but most could enjoy big savings by making a few simple changes on their phone bills. CUB has shown phone customers how to save millions of dollars through an award- winning website, www.CitizensUtilityBoard.org, and free clinics that give tips on how to slash local and long-distance bills.
Also, CUB Energy Saver has shown participants how to reduce annual electricity usage by an average of 5.5 %, ($55 a year on electricity). In addition, learn how to cut your natural gas bills by an additional $49 a year.
