Our Commercial Conservation Specialist - Martin Selch
Puget Sound Energy supports Resource Conservation Managers (RCM) for large-scale organizations spending over $1,500,000 per year on energy. Now Sustainable Connections is making this proven effective service available to small and medium sized businesses. RCMs have on average reduced energy costs by 5-20% - mostly through good maintenance and occupant habits.
