COLLINSVILLE, Ill. – To help residents save on their utility bills, state Rep. Katie Stuart, D-Edwardsville, is partnering with the Citizens Utility Board (CUB) to host a Home Energy Saving Webinar on Friday, July 17 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
“CUB’s services are valuable in helping consumers save energy and money on their utility bills,” said Stuart. “The webinar is an opportunity for residents to learn about recent changes in Illinois energy policy, including relief efforts to help families facing financial strain from the pandemic.”
Stuart’s webinar will cover consumer protection policies, cost-saving programs and common hidden charges on energy bills. The focus of the webinar is to help residents save energy and money each month, and understanding the charges on your bill can help you eliminate unnecessary fees and avoid scams.
