Press Release: DC Solar VP Announces Decision to Opt-Out of Automatic Pioneer Enrollment

PLACER COUNTY, CA – January 29, 2018 – DC Solar Electric Inc., your solar solution partner in Northern California, announced today that Chasin Scott, Vice President and Director of Business Development, declared his decision to opt-out of the Pioneer Community Energy Automatic enrollment which begins February 1, 2018, for many Placer County residents.

The Company wants all residents in Placer County to be well aware of the upcoming automatic enrollment in the Pioneer program, especially as solar true-up decisions have not yet been released by the organization.

“I have done extensive research and have found that Pioneer customers “could” save up to less than a quarter of a penny per kWh ($0.0024 cents),” said Chasin Scott, Vice President. “The possibility of saving a quarter of a penny per kWh doesn’t seem to be a great ROI when considering the possibility of a future opt-out fee. Pioneer has yet to finalize these kinds of things, and I think buyers really need to beware here. I can tell you that I am opting out before to avoid the possibility of monthly true-ups with my solar system and the possibility of a potential opt-out fee. If Pioneer truly ends up being a good thing, I can opt-in for free down the road.”
