The Citizens Utility Board (CUB) will analyze utility bills at a free clinic to help Palos Hills and Hickory Hills residents save money on utilities. This utility bill clinic will take place February 15 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Green Hills Public Library and is co-sponsored by the Cook County Department of Environmental Control. Consumers should bring their gas, electric and phone bills for a free, one-on-one consultation with a CUB expert, who will search for ways to lower utility costs.

CUB will give consumers information on:

  • How to spot unnecessary charges on natural gas, electric and phone bills.
  • Energy efficiency programs and rebates that can help people cut their utility bills.
  • Installation of ComEd’s new smart meters and programs such as Peak Time Savings and Hourly Pricing that could save consumers money.

Registration is required for this event. You can register by clicking here or in person at the library, prior to the clinic. The Green Hills Public Library is located at  10331 S. Interlochen Dr., Palos Hills.
