Lime Energy will be the exclusive provider of comprehensive energy efficiency upgrades for the program and anticipates the creation of a number of energy efficiency jobs as a result of the contract. AEP Ohio will incentivize its small business customers to reduce energy waste and lower their monthly electric bills by paying up to 80 percent of the cost to complete a retrofit. “The revitalized Small Business Express Direct Install Program is part of AEP Ohio’s ongoing commitment to provide value to our customers,” said Al Kohler, program coordinator of AEP Ohio’s Express Program. “Implementing energy efficient technologies will allow small business owners throughout Ohio to create a better work environment and put money back in their pocket every month.”
“Lime Energy has been at the forefront of delivering energy efficiency through utility programs since 2009,” said John O’Rourke, president and CEO of Lime Energy. “Lime is excited to bring our innovative SBDI model to the Midwest. Our proven technology platform and our unparalleled small business marketing and sales experience will ensure the success of this program for AEP Ohio while delivering the highest level of satisfaction to their customers.”
