Outage Texting Program

I am very happy with the service. Outages are almost non-existent. If there is an outage, it usually only lasts a matter of minutes. That is very important during inclement weather.

Pioneer Member

We like Pioneer Electric. We’ve had them since we’ve been in Ohio. I think they are great. They’ve always been courteous, and everyone is very nice.
