Be green, support CUB: Get an “I LOVE CUB” reusable shopping tote

20160315_renewaltote_enewsContribute $25 to help CUB fight $6 billion in rate hikes and we’ll send you a heavy-duty, reusable “I LOVE CUB” shopping tote.

Please, renew your CUB membership now! 

CUB has just compiled the 2015 profits for the parent companies of Illinois’ big energy, telecom and cable companies. Take a look at what Julie and Christie, CUB’s two-person legal team, are up against.

AT&T: $13.2 billion

Comcast: $8.2 billion

Exelon (ComEd parent): $2.2 billion

WEC Energy (Peoples Gas parent): $640 million

Ameren: $630 million

AGL Resources (Nicor parent): $388 million

Total: $25.3 billion

At CUB, every dollar we raise yields about $300 in consumer savings. No wasteful spending here—your contribution goes a long way. But look at the wasteful utility spending Julie and Christie have uncovered over the years.

Golf tournaments, parade floats, sporting events, skyboxes, catering: $529,000

Legal costs to fight for rate hikes: $50 million

Executive pay packages: $50 million

Golden parachutes for former execs: $61 million

It’s obscene. Help us fight wasteful spending, rip-offs and $6 billion in rate hikes. 

In March only, renew your membership with a $25 contribution and we’ll send you your reusable “I LOVE CUB” shopping tote!

It’s the perfect way to be green and support CUB!
