Program Manager, Local Energy Development #3867

PSE’s Energy Efficiency Services department is looking for a Program Manager to join our team to manage the process associated with interconnecting small-scale generating systems with PSE’s distribution system, and continue to improve upon the process and communications. The position serves as the PSE point person for project developers as well as for the numerous internal departments that participate in the interconnection work. The projects will not include residential solar systems that fall under the Net Metering program.

We are looking for someone to serve as the first point of contact for interconnection customers and provide necessary education to project developers throughout each of the key phases of interconnection. You will ensure that the developer understands the process and costs so that their expectations are correct. The position will also ensure all necessary internal departments are involved, consulted and informed as appropriate to ensure that all timelines and regulations are met.

The Program Manager will also serve as the key contact (bringing in other key stakeholders as needed), after power production begins to verify production, identify and implement marketing opportunities, manage communications regarding power glitches and ensure that any production or property changes are identified quickly and appropriately managed internally. The Program Manager will provide ongoing management level reporting of program status and capacity, interconnection project details (e.g., number, type, location, production, payments), project pipeline assessment (e.g., number, type, potential production value), and project costs and revenue. The person in this role will also have the opportunity to implement and learn from proposed interconnection process, seek input from multiple stakeholder groups on their roles and responsibilities, identify, prioritize and implement process improvement opportunities documenting changes to the existing process. The ideal person will have an appreciation for the entrepreneurial spirit and challenges associated with developing and managing small scale operations.

This is an excellent opportunity to play an integral role within PSE to help us better serve the environment, our customers and the communities they live in by enabling us to make informed and responsible business decisions. PSE provides an environment where all employees are valued, respected and provided with the opportunity to achieve maximum performance. We offer a comprehensive pay package that includes competitive compensation, annual goals-based incentive bonuses, comprehensive cafeteria-style benefits, 401(K), a company paid retirement pension plan, a generous paid time off package, and an employee assistance and wellness program. Gain the energy to do great things through a career with Puget Sound Energy!
