HOW WE OPERATE
Even though Pioneer provides electric power to its members, it is the membership that powers the cooperative. Members have a voice in the operation of their electric utility and vote for their board of trustees, a group of members who governs the co-op. Members have equal representation in Pioneer despite their size or number of service accounts — one member equals one vote. We are particularly responsive to the needs and expectations of our members because they are also our owners.
