2024 Grass Valley and Nevada City Electricity Provider

Gina Stassi Vanacore is the Community Outreach Manager for Pioneer Community Energy.

In 2024, Pioneer will become the electricity provider for residents and businesses in Grass Valley and Nevada City. If you live in unincorporated Nevada County, we currently are in discussions with the County to be your energy provider in 2025. 

Pioneer Community Energy is a locally owned not-for-profit electricity provider — powering unincorporated Placer and El Dorado counties and the incorporated areas of Auburn, Colfax, Lincoln, Placerville, Rocklin and Loomis with competitive rates, exceptional customer service and a choice of energy options. We operate for the benefit of the communities we serve — not corporate shareholders. We’re excited to meet you and to make your priorities our priorities.

With more than two decades of experience working on energy-related issues, she has worked on some of California’s most pressing initiatives, including dam removal at the California/Oregon border; introducing the Western Energy Imbalance Market and regionalizing the California power grid; curtailment and the “Duck Curve;” diversification of renewable energy resources; integration of clean fleet technology; and NEM reform.

Gina previously was a Vice President at Porter Novelli/Sacramento, a statewide public affairs firm, where she managed all aspects of strategic planning, research, plan implementation, and evaluation for a variety of clients. She also served as the Media Relations Manager for the California Lottery and spent several years in broadcast and print media while working for Brown Broadcasting Company, a group of West Coast radio stations, and at The Sacramento Bee.

Gina earned her Bachelor of Arts in Communications with a Public Relations emphasis, from CSU, Sacramento and graduated with honors.
