Resource Conservation Management (RCM) is a well-coordinated effort to reduce the utility costs associated with facility operations. These utilities include energy, water and solid waste. The program focuses on occupant comfort, cost-effectiveness and data analysis of building systems. Engagement of building occupants and operators is a big part of a successful program.
In support of E.O. 14-04, the Department of Enterprise Services Energy Program is excited to announce the launch of the Resource Conservation Management (RCM) Team.
A pilot program is being developed through the 2015-17 biennium for School Districts, Higher Ed and State Agencies (per E.O. 14-04). The successful candidate(s) will receive a no-cost service. Our team will assist in identifying low-cost and no-cost utility efficiency improvements and help develop strategies to carry those improvements into the future. We will team up with local utility providers to identify available utility grants to leverage limited dollars, an to find the best rate possible.
A few of the things we can help with:
A successful pilot program and continued interest will help the team support the efforts for providing this service in the future. Please contact us at RCM@des.wa.gov or call Ron Major at (360) 239-4134 for more information about this exciting new opportunity.
