Upcoming CUB events in January 2022

Happy New Year everyone! CUB looks forward to continuing the fight for consumer protections and clean, affordable energy in 2022. 

One major way we do that is by staffing hundreds of free events that can help you improve energy efficiency at home and protect your bottom line. We hope to see you at an event in January.
