Get ready for more cold

Temperatures are expected to drop AGAIN this week. (Anyone else reminded of the movie Groundhog Day?)  Wednesday might see lows between 0 and -10 degrees with a wind chill of -20 degrees to -30 degrees!

The cold spike is expected to have some nasty consequences for your gas bill.  Nicor’s preliminary March figures predict a 33 percent jump in supply rates from last month!  CUB issued a news release and spoke to WGN on the potential price spike yesterday.

In preparation of Polar Vortex III, we want to help you protect against the icy cold and thwart potentially-high utility bills.  Read our energy efficiency tips here to learn how to cut usage and save money.

Also, be sure to join CUB Energy Saver, our free online tool that helps consumers build a money-saving energy plan customized for their home. The service tracks actual savings, and has been showing consumers how to cut their natural gas and electric bills by an average of about $100 a year.  That’s big bucks!
