About Us

About Us


The Citizens Utility Board (CUB) of Minnesota is a nonprofit advocate for Minnesota’s utility consumers. We advocate for affordable and reliable utility service and clean energy for Minnesota residents and small businesses.

CUB is committed to reducing the costs and environmental impacts of energy for the people of Minnesota by improving public policy, educating consumers about energy options, and offering personalized guidance on how to lower electricity and natural gas bills. Using our extensive knowledge of Minnesota regulations and laws, we are dedicated to protecting consumers, supporting the stewardship of our natural resources, and holding utility companies accountable.

Our work

CUB provides no-charge services to any Minnesota utility customer, and we represent consumers’ interests before the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission and in policy making. Find out the latest updates on our blog.


CUB’s work is made possible entirely by donations. Our largest sources of funding in 2017 are provided by the McKnight Foundation, Energy Foundation, and individual supporters. If you like CUB’s work, please contribute today.
