Want to learn more about ways to save money on your utility bills, get your bills analyzed and learn more about consumer protections? Check out our upcoming events for the month of July! As more folks continue to get vaccinated, we are returning to in-person events while continuing to host virtual events as well.
Have questions or just want to chat with the CUB staff? Every Friday at 11 a.m. we host Coffee with CUB to answer your utility questions. Join us by visiting our Facebook page and watch via Facebook Live. We also host a Spanish-language version, Cafecito con CUB, on Tuesdays at 2 p.m.
