PG&E has increased rates for all customers to support their poles and wires (T&D). This affects Pioneer and non-Pioneer customers equally – everyone’s rates will go up the exact same dollar amount.
Don’t be misled. We guarantee that Pioneer’s savings over PG&E have not changed. Calculate your savings in El Dorado and Placer County.
California’s electric grid contains thousands of miles of transmission lines and tens of thousands of miles of distribution lines. Transmission lines are the “highway” on which the electricity we use moves. Distribution lines are like the city streets that bring the electricity to your meter. They can be susceptible to outages for a variety of reasons.
Remember safety first! Stay far away from a downed powerline and call 911 immediately!
Backup electric generators can be part of your response plan for PSPS or other power outage events. Here are some tips for generator safety.
PSPS events may last for several days. Prepare yourself, your home, your business and your family.
Visit the Safety Action Center for more helpful hints about preparing for PSPS events.
Across California, fire has become an increasing concern. Fortunately, numerous resources exist so you can prepare yourself and your family for wildfires and other fire events with information and advanced planning.
Pioneer issued checks to solar customers with a cumulative net surplus of energy (known as Net Surplus Generators) during May for the March/April billing period if their credit balance (calculated at the Net Surplus Compensation Rate) for the past 12 months exceeded $25.00. Credit balances of less than $25.00 were rolled forward and applied to the next bill.
A few of our clients have contacted us to confirm the check’s authenticity. Rest assured, it is indeed real! If you receive a Blue or Orange check from Bill.com with a reference to Pioneer, it is safe to deposit.
We take pride in helping our solar customers save; Pioneer pays $.005 (1/2 cent) per kWh more than PG&E for any over-production sold back to the grid (Net Surplus Compensation Rate or NSC).
