Rocklin, CA — The Pioneer Community Energy Board of Directors is taking action that underscores its ongoing commitment to be among the most affordable Community Choice Aggregation providers of electricity in California. The Board announced at its Dec. 15, 2022, meeting that Pioneer’s adjusted electricity rates will provide savings of 15 percent or more compared with PG&E’s generation rates for existing customers. The increased savings take effect in Jan. 2023, for Pioneer residential and business customers in the Placer County and El Dorado County service areas. Pioneer supplies the electricity generation portion of your bill while gas and transmission/distribution charges are from PG&E.

“Pioneer is steadfast in our commitment to keeping electricity generation costs competitive,” said Alice Dowdin Calvillo, who serves as Chairperson of the Pioneer Board of Directors and Mayor for the City of Auburn. “We are pleased to offer Pioneer customers savings on electricity generation rates compared to PG&E’s, saving Pioneer customers a projected $46 million in 2023 alone.”

Customers who previously chose to opt out of Pioneer’s services may want to opt in to benefit from the additional savings on electricity now offered by Pioneer, effective Jan. 1, 2023. For more information, visit pioneercommunityenergy.org.
