CHAMPAIGN – To help save homeowners money on rising utility bills, State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) is holding a free seminar and clinic with the Citizens Utility Board.

“This clinic will give people the opportunity to learn how to reduce their utility bills,” Bennett said.  “I encourage anyone that is looking to keep their hard-earned money in their pockets and shave unnecessary spending off their utility bills to participate in this seminar and clinic.”

The seminar and clinic will each take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Champaign Public Library, located at 200 W. Green St. in Champaign.

The initial seminar will be held on Thursday, Sept. 23, giving participants the opportunity to learn how to make the right choice when selecting electric and gas providers. Later, on Wednesday, Sept. 29, participants will bring in copies of their utility bills and sit down one-on-one with a CUB professional at the clinic to discuss lowering their electric, water, gas, phone, cable and internet bills.

During the clinic, the representative will evaluate participants’ bills to determine if they are signed up with an alternative supplier or paying for unnecessary products or services. CUB will also let participants know if they are eligible for money-saving programs, like financial assistance, and share information about energy efficiency programs.

Senator Bennett encourages residents to take advantage of this free clinic to keep their utility usage and costs in check.
