Pioneer was formed in 2017, joining the other California CCAs in providing energy to more than 11 million customers across the state. We started providing electric services in 2018 to the communities of Auburn, Colfax, Lincoln, Rocklin, Loomis and most of unincorporated Placer County, achieving status as an independent entity in 2021 with the payoff of debts and the hiring of necessary operational staff. In 2022 we started providing the same stable and reliable electric service to most of unincorporated El Dorado County and the City of Placerville. We are powered by the communities we serve — not corporate shareholders.
Our Governing Board consists of nine locally elected representatives from the El Dorado County and Placer County Boards of Supervisors, and the local government councils of Auburn, Colfax, Lincoln, Loomis, Placerville and Rocklin. Pioneer is a local government, not-for-profit, joint powers authority.
