Utility Solutions

The Residential Utility Solutions business unit has a long-standing and quantifiable track record of delivering successful energy efficiency programs on behalf of our utility clients. This business has grown rapidly the last few years and has an extensive network of trusted trade allies, retail partners, manufacturers, measurement and verification partners. This team leverages those relationships to deliver the energy savings or peak power solutions our clients most desire.

This is an exciting time for the energy efficiency industry. As utilities increase their energy efficiency goals, there is a tremendous opportunity to significantly decrease energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Our Residential Utility Solutions Team has an immediate need for a Program Manager based out of our Seattle office. In this role, you will be responsible for our Multifamily Retrofit Program, reporting to our Senior Manager of Utility Solutions. As a part of this team, you will experience all the benefits of working for a fast-paced, entrepreneurial company while having a significant impact in energy efficiency, climate and sustainability.
