Contribute $25 to help CUB fight $6 billion in rate hikes and we’ll send you a heavy-duty, reusable “I LOVE CUB” shopping tote.
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.
It’s the perfect way to be green and support CUB!
