CUB will explain what electric competition is, what that means to the consumer and what are your options. In northern Illinois, you can choose Commonwealth Edison (ComEd), the regulated utility, to supply you with power, or go with alternative suppliers. While it's an interesting development in the electric market, long-term savings are not guaranteed. The jury is still out on whether residential competition is going to bring real value to consumers in the long run. We will provide an informative, educational speech on what consumers need to know if they choose to switch to an alternative energy supplier. For questions, thoughts or concerns, please join CUB on Sept. 22 to listen a representative speak about electric competition.
Free admission; free parking in designated areas.
