NEWARK, N.J. — Lime Energy Co. announced it has received a one-year contract extension with National Grid to continue its Small Business Program in western New York. This extension of the six-year partnership represents National Grid’s ongoing commitment to deliver efficiency solutions to its small commercial customers.

In the past six years, Lime Energy has provided energy efficiency solutions to small businesses in Buffalo and the surrounding area, including many customers located in low-to-moderate income communities. With the help of Lime Energy, these small business owners have been able to take advantage of utility incentives to upgrade inefficient refrigeration and lighting. The program has created jobs, provided steady employment to dozens of contractors, and helped commercial customers in the Buffalo area better manage their energy usage and bills.

“Lime Energy has provided thousands of small businesses with much needed energy efficiency solutions in western New York,” said Adam Procell, Lime Energy president and CEO. “Lime Energy is proud to deliver much needed energy savings and promote economic growth throughout local communities in New York state. We look forward to continuing our partnership with National Grid to help small business owners improve their bottom line in 2016.”

Lime Energy works with half of the U.S.’s top 25 utility companies, designing and implementing commercial energy efficiency programs.
