CUB endorsement: Programs to help lower your gas bills!

20151012_jumpstartenergysmart_blogOver the summer, we asked our CUB Action Network members if they wanted to know more about CUB’s favorite energy efficiency programs. The answer was a resounding: YES!

So without further adieu, here is a deep dive into two programs being offered to gas customers in Northern Illinois: the energySMART program from Nicor Gas and Home Energy Jumpstart from Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas.
