Want to Save on Your Utility Bill? This Minn. Nonprofit Has Some Tips

MPR ran a piece about the efforts of Citizens Utility Board (CUB) of Minnesota to educate people on how to lower their utility bills.

Among the brilliant, energy-saving insights provided by CUB were:

  • Changing light bulbs and turning off lights and gadgets when not in use.
  • Turning down the heat on your water heater.
  • Washing clothes in cold water, instead of warm water.
  • Adding insulation to your home.
  • Putting plastic over windows in the winter to keep the cold air out

These revolutionary recommendations can probably save the average home tens of dollars over the course of a year!

But if CUB, which has made contact with several thousand Minnesotans in the past few years, and holds sessions at churches, apartment complexes and by phone, at call-in events, really wanted to help Minnesotans lower their utility bills, they would stop clamoring for more expensive and unreliable renewable energy on the grid.

CUB has been a wind and solar cheerleader for the duration of its existence, even though Minnesota’s enormous, $15 billion spending spree on wind has resulted in our electricity prices growing 26 percent faster than the national average since 2007.

Utility bills will continue to climb as we continue to add unneeded electricity generation capacity on the grid.
