High Gas Prices Drive Up Winter Bills

Many customers are experiencing a higher PG&E bill due to charges for natural gas. Natural gas is a PG&E service and is a part of your PG&E bill. Pioneer does not manage natural gas. Learn more at PGE.com.

Pioneer procures your electricity, and we are committed to keeping costs low. Pioneer’s Board of Directors recently approved rates starting in January 2023 that will save all Pioneer customers 15% or more compared with PG&E’s electricity procurement costs.
