Resource Synergy is a sustainability consultancy committed to helping Northwest businesses reduce costs and improve their environmental impact. Founded in 2015, the company helps businesses, non-profits, and government agencies overcome adoption barriers, ensuring the success of energy/water efficiency and waste prevention programs.

The following service offerings are available in the Seattle and Spokane markets.

Energy Service Offerings:

Legislative Compliance

Washington State’s Clean Buildings Act (HB1257) and a myriad of local ordinances require benchmarking and reduction of energy consumption. Resource Synergy helps commercial buildings navigate this often-confusing process through:

  • Establishing Energy Star Portfolio Manager profiles and benchmarking buildings
  • Comparing the building’s energy use intensity (EUI) to the targets set by legislation.
  • Applying for compliance, if applicable
  • Identifying the most economical pathway to compliance if the building does not meet the EUI targets
  • Applying for conditional compliance, allowing time to invest in efficiency without fear of penalties

C-PACER Project Development

Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy and Resilience (C-PACER) financing is a powerful new tool for building owners and property managers. As a long-term, low-interest loan, it allows deeper investment in energy efficiency, renewable energy, water efficiency, and resilience (seismic, fire, & flood) projects. Often, programs can deliver an immediate positive impact on Net Operating Income without any cash-out-of-pocket. Resource Synergy simplifies this process by:

  • Identifying applicable projects
  • Quantifying costs
  • Verifying savings
  • Facilitating financing
  • Filing the corresponding assessment with the local taxing jurisdiction
  • Coordinating the implementation of projects and payment of contractors


Resource Synergy will replace older-generation fluorescent, incandescent, and HID lighting with the latest LED technology without requiring clients to pay up-front. Instead, a monthly “program fee” will be charged, making it an easy, no-cost retrofit solution, covering:

  • Opportunity identification
  • Financial analysis
  • Equipment purchase
  • Installation by a licensed contractor
  • Disposal of old lamps
  • Maintenance and replacement of lamps over the contract term

Prefer to pay outright? That’s great! We’re still happy to manage your retrofit program.

Waste Reduction & Recycling Service Offerings:

Since 2015, Resource Synergy has implemented over 150 waste reduction, recycling, and composting programs, reducing our clients’ waste bills by an average of 40%! Whether the site is an office building, medical facility, retail center, or entertainment venue, we’ve developed best practices that ensure that waste diversion is maximized and contamination is minimized. Programs are customized for each building and organization but commonly include:

  • Waste characterization/audits
  • Opportunity identification
  • Distribution of collection bins, signs, and other program materials
  • Janitorial training
  • Hauling service procurement and optimization
  • Tenant/employee education
  • Savings tracking
  • Our shared savings and bundled billing models ensure that up-front costs are minimized (or eliminated) and savings are reaped throughout the program
