Understand Your Utility Bill?
Citizens Utility Board Can Help
March 21 seminars and clinic help ratepayers save energy costs in the face of Minnesota Power’s proposed rate hikes

DULUTH, MN – Learn about your energy bill, how to save on energy costs, and how to get renewable energy at sessions sponsored by Citizens Utility Board (CUB), Minnesota Citizens Federation Northeast and Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light. These sessions are provided in the face of Minnesota Power proposals to raise rates on residents and businesses.

“Our mission is to help people get affordable and clean energy,” said Annie Levenson Falk, Executive Director of Citizens Utility Board. “The seminars are a resource we want to provide customers to learn about the proposed rate hikes and to understand their energy bills and their options. CUB will also provide a free one-on-one energy bill consultation. Just bring your utility bill and our staff will provide ideas on how to save money.”

CUB, the Citizens Federation, and Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light also advocate before the Public Utilities Commission for fair rates and renewable options for residential and small business customers.

The events – free of charge – will be held on Tuesday, March 21, at First Methodist Church (Coppertop Church) in Duluth.
