​UPDATE: The Pioneer Community Energy website is now live. For more information or to opt-out of the program, please visit

Pioneer Community Energy is a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) Program that was formed by the jurisdictions of Auburn, Colfax, Lincoln, Loomis, Rocklin and Placer County through a joint powers authority. The Lincoln City Council issued a resolution adopting Ordinance 947B on June 27, 2017 following a public hearing.  The ordinance authorized the City to join the Sierra Valley Energy Authority JPA and to implement a CCA program in Lincoln.

Pioneer will begin providing energy in February 2018; at this time, all ratepayers who have not completed an opt-out form will be automatically transitioned to Pioneer. The main benefits of Pioneer are competitive rates lower than PG&E, as well as local control over electricity and community investments. PG&E will continue to provide the distribution of energy, as well as all gas services.

Pioneer Community Energy is a separate agency that is not managed by City. City staff has reached out to Pioneer Community Energy to obtain answers to many of your questions. We will post information on the City’s website as we obtain it. In the meanwhile, please contact Pioneer Community Energy at 1-844-YES-4PIONEER (1-844-937-7466) or email if you have questions about Pioneer or if you would like to continue receiving electricity from PG&E.

You can learn more at or by e-mailing Pioneer at with any questions about the program. 

Please see this flyer for full details on the program.

For more information on CCAs in general, please see this page from PG&E.
