Launched in 2009 in response to the state’s Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard (EEPS), which is aimed at reducing statewide energy usage by 15 percent by 2015, National Grid’s Small Business Program has been a major contributor to the EEPS initiative.
Lime Energy has been the exclusive provider of energy efficiency upgrades for National Grid’s program in western New York since 2009. In that time, the company has helped more than 6,000 National Grid customers lower their energy costs while upgrading their facilities, delivering over $33 million in incentives to cover project costs. Lime Energy said it has delivered over 150,000 megawatt hours of energy efficiency resources, which is equivalent to powering almost 16,000 homes for one year.
“Lime Energy is excited to continue our commitment to assist small businesses in western New York while playing a significant role in the state’s Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard,” said John O’Rourke, president and CEO of Lime Energy. “National Grid has been a terrific partner and leader in energy efficiency. This award demonstrates our clients’ continued confidence in Lime Energy’s ability to deliver reliable and cost effective energy efficiency for small businesses.”
