Puget Sound Energy's (PSE) Resource Conservation Manager Program (RCM) provides funding and support to customers who hire a RCM. The role of an RCM is to increase efficiency by focusing on improvements to Operations and Maintenance practices, and instituting best practices for resource usage (e.g. electricity, natural gas, water and sewer, solid waste and recycling). Most organizations can reduce annual costs from 10% to 15% over a three-year period.

The RCM program is available to any school district, public-sector government agency, and commercial or industrial customers, with the focus on larger customers with multiple facilities. For qualifying organizations, PSE will pay a cash incentive determined as a percentage of the typical RCM salary to help get the program started with initial set-up of utility database and program organization. Typically, PSE will fund 25% of the first year salary. Visit PSE's web site for more information, including an application.

Other Information 

Typical program participants have at least 1,000,000 square feet of conditioned space and an annual utility/resource budget of over two million dollars to support a full time RCM.
