The Citizens Utility Board (CUB) will analyze utility bills at a free clinic to help Franklin Park residents save money on utilities. This utility bill clinic will take place on May 22 from 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. at Franklin Park Public Library and is co-sponsored by the Cook County Department of Environment and Sustainability. 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.
  • New smart meters and programs such as Peak Time Savings and Hourly Pricing that could save consumers money.

Space is limited for this event, so please register ahead of time. You can register by calling 847-455-6016, ext.2 or by stopping by the Info Desk to register in person. The Franklin Park Public Library is located at 10311 Grand Ave.,  Franklin Park.
