We encourage you to call our customer service team at 916-758-8969 to talk through your bill over the phone.

Pioneer supports reliable solar energy and pays more per kWh than PG&E for overproduction. Pioneer’s solar or net energy metering (NEM) customers received more than $484,000 in our most recent cycle.

It’s important to remember that participation in our service will always be your choice. In 2002, California’s Community Choice Aggregation Law (AB 117) made enrollment in the local community choice agency the default when available. Customers residing in the Pioneer Community Energy service area are automatically enrolled unless they choose not to participate by opting out. It truly is your power and your choice. Are you opting out because you don’t know enough about default enrollment requirements imposed by AB 117, Community Choice Aggregators or PIoneer Community Energy? Please visit our How it Works page or call 916-758-8969 to speak with a Pioneer team member.
