What you get

If you qualify for PSE's RCM program, PSE will help you:

  • Develop your RCM's skill set with free training sessions

You also receive financial incentives at key points in the process, which are determined as follows:

Start-up incentive

If your RCM completes all of the deliverables and task requirements listed below within the first year of your program you receive a one-time start-up incentive of up to $10,000.

Performance incentive

For each year of your program that your RCM completes all tasks and submits all deliverables, you receive a calculated performance incentive using the rates below.

Performance incentives can only be earned for documented energy savings from RCM program measures.

Target incentive

Target incentives can be earned with energy savings from both RCM and non-RCM program measures such as PSE-incentivized lighting or HVAC upgrades.
