The Citizens Utility Board (CUB) will analyze electric, natural gas and phone bills at a free clinic at 9:30 a.m. July 24 at the Levy Center, 300 Dodge Ave., to show Evanston residents how to save hundreds of dollars a year.

Consumers should bring their phone, electric and gas bills for a free, one-on-one consultation – or “checkup” – with a CUB expert who will search for ways to lower their utility costs.

“The key to saving money on your utility bills is simply to read them,” CUB Executive Director David Kolata said. “At a CUB clinic you can sit down with an expert who can explain all the confusing charges, answer your questions, and give you ways to slash your costs. You can’t find a free service like this anywhere else.” 

More information is available by calling CUB’s Consumer Hotline at 1-800-669-5556.
