March update: A message from CUB Executive Director David Kolata

We’re tackling big problems, and it’s easy to get discouraged. But I want you to know your support and activism are making a difference in this world. Thank you!

More people are hearing our message. Over the last month, we’ve sent about 5,000 emails to the General Assembly. You’ve fought for clean energystood up to big water corporations, and said NO to skyrocketing gas bills.

Thanks to your support, we’ve added a new free guide to our library: 10 Ways To Cut Smartphone Data Waste. And soon, CUB will become the nation’s first consumer group to release a study that shows how electric vehicles could help reduce power bills for everyone, even people who don’t own a car. When we release it, I’ll make sure to send you Charging Ahead: Deriving Value from Electric Vehicles For All Electricity Customers.

But the more consumer advocacy work we do, the more that needs to be done. Recently, we met Dale who ended up paying what could be the highest rate we’ve ever seen with a natural gas supplier. Terrible! Please read his story.

Again, we are grateful for your ongoing support. We promise to put it to the best use fighting for lower bills for you, for Dale, and for all Illinois consumers.
