Our Story

For most Americans, the job of safeguarding their interests when it comes to utilities is a responsibility of the state government. Depending on the state, it could be the Attorney General’s office, or an Office of People’s Counsel, or another agency that works to make sure homeowners and renters are protected from overspending and excessive profits of their utilities.

But Wisconsin is different.

Instead of a state agency working on your behalf, Wisconsin has CUB. The Citizens Utility Board is your advocate for fair and affordable prices when it comes to your electric, natural gas and water utility service.

We’ve been watching utility spending and advocating for you for decades. Join us!

WHO WE ARE

Citizens Utility Board of Wisconsin, Wisconsin’s voice for utility consumers, is a member-supported nonprofit organization that advocates for reliable and affordable utility service on behalf of residential and small business customers of electric, natural gas, and water utilities before the Public Service Commission (PSC), the Legislature, and the courts.

CUB was founded in 1979. CUB’s successful advocacy on the part of residential and small business customers before the PSC has cut more than $3 billion from Wisconsin utility bills since 2008.
