ELGIN, Ill. – To help families save money on their phone, gas, and electric bills, state Rep. Anna Moeller and State Sen. Cristina Castro, D – Elgin, are teaming with the Citizens Utility Board (CUB) for a free utility bill clinic on Monday, Jan. 23 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Gail Borden Public Library, located at 270 N. Grove Ave. in downtown Elgin.

“Increasing utility bills, especially during the winter, places an added financial burden on many families already struggling to make ends meet,” Moeller said. “These seminars are very helpful in educating consumers about the services they need and how much they should be paying for them.”

CUB was created as a non-profit and non-partisan group by the General Assembly in 1983 with the purpose of representing the interests of residential utility customers in Illinois. Both Moeller and Castro are looking forward to this event and plan to host future utility bill clinics in the Elgin area to help show consumers how to cut cost on their gas, electric, and phone bills.

Space is limited and an RSVP is required. Consumers should bring a copy of their gas, electric and/or phone bill to go over with a CUB representative to learn how they may be able to save money.

“It can be very confusing and frustrating trying to understand all the different charges on an electric, gas or phone bill,” Castro said. “Fortunately, this free utility bill clinic can give residents cost-saving information in one convenient location.”

To RSVP, please call Rep. Moeller’s constituent service office at 847-841-7130 or email
