The number one priority for Pioneer Community Energy in El Dorado County is offering competitive and stable electricity generation rates for your home, and we are delivering. Most El Dorado County residential customers will experience savings of more than 19 percent on their bills in 2023.
Pioneer has developed a tool to assist most of our customers in understanding their monthly and annual savings by choosing Pioneer. All of our residential customers on an E1 rate will find that this calculator can quickly show their energy savings. This calculator reflects only E1 rates, so please reach out if you can’t find your rate plan or are on a different rate plan.
This calculator is for the vintage year 2021. Customers with a 2021 Power Charge Indifference Adjustment (PCIA), also called an “Exit Fee,” can quickly see the difference in savings between PG&E and Pioneer Community Energy rates. To verify your vintage year, please look at your bill. If your vintage year is different or you can’t find your vintage year, please contact Pioneer for an individualized rate analysis.
Simply enter your monthly kWh usage (from your bill) into our rate calculator below and compare PG&E generation costs versus the Pioneer generation rate PLUS the appropriate PCIA. The savings you’ll achieve by choosing Pioneer will be obvious.
Enter your information in our Rates Comparison Calculator to see how much you could save with Pioneer Community Energy.
