HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — Lime Energy Co., a provider of energy efficiency solutions for small businesses, announced that the company has partnered with National Resource Management Inc. (NRM), a supplier of energy-efficient refrigeration solutions. Lime Energy and NRM have completed development work that enables NRM’s suite of refrigeration solutions to be deployed through Lime Energy’s web-based technology platform. The result is that these solutions can be provided to thousands of small businesses within the small business energy efficiency programs that Lime implements on behalf of its utility clients.
The companies are working together across several utility territories and states where they are bringing refrigeration upgrades along with other measures to deliver energy efficiency projects to small businesses — long considered a hard to reach market, said the companies. Refrigeration is among the leading operating costs for many small businesses, and participation in Lime Energy’s utility programs can significantly reduce this cost while providing facilities with needed upgrades.
