ORGANIZATION: Citizens Utility Board

CUB’s coming to your community and we need your help! We’re building a volunteer team to educate your neighbors about big issues that impact utility bills-and to help people save money.

Over the past few years, several key clean energy policies have been passed on a state and federal level that help consumers access clean and affordable energy. If these policies are implemented correctly, they can provide a path to fighting the most devastating and expensive consequences of climate change while controlling costs for energy customers. We are looking for long-term volunteers who can help us continue our fight for clean energy policies like the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act (CEJA) and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). CUB needs your help reaching out to local elected officials and community organizations, organizing phone banks and letter-writing parties in your community, sorting petitions, etc. We can modify our program to meet your interests and needs!

"I think it’s awesome that we have an organization in Illinois that solely protects the consumer," said Glenview-area volunteer Arpi Yazijian. "Just knowing I’m helping makes me feel good."

Become a volunteer today, and help fight utility rate hikes and rip-offs.

Call (312)263-4282 and ask to speak to Matt about our current volunteer opportunities. Our main office is in Chicago, but we welcome volunteers anywhere in Illinois!

About Citizens Utility Board

Location:

309 W WASHINGTON ST STE 800, CHICAGO, IL 60606, US

Mission Statement

When the Illinois General Assembly created CUB in 1983, it gave the nonprofit, nonpartisan organization a clear mission: to represent the interests of residential utility customers across the state. The statute directs CUB to carry out that mission by intervening in rate making proceedings before the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC), in the courts and before other public bodies and by providing consumers with information and assistance regarding their utility companies. Since its inception in 1984, CUB has been doing just that--working for lower rates and better service from the state's investor-owned electric, gas and telephone companies.

Description

Since CUB opened its doors, the watchdog has saved Illinois consumers more than $20 billion saved by fighting proposed electricity, natural gas and telephone rate hikes. For every dollar CUB has raised during that time, it has yielded roughly $300 in savings-a dramatic return on investment that represents one more reason why the St. Louis Post-Dispatch praised CUB as the "gold standard" of consumer advocates.
