LED and Other Upgrade Financing to Fit Your Budget

Lime Energy Eliminates Financial Headaches

Does this sound familiar? Your energy bill is eating up a huge chunk of your budget and compromising your profitability. You’re well aware that retrofitting or upgrading your lights, HVAC system, refrigeration, automation or energy controls would result in major short-term and long-term savings and a better environment for your employees and your customers. But you also know that energy-efficiency projects can be very expensive.

We Feel Your Pain

The costs of energy efficiency upgrades have dropped in recent years, but purchasing and installing new lights, HVAC systems and other improvements still aren’t cheap. Lime Energy understands the financial struggle and has developed financing packages to make energy efficiency affordable from Day 1. Our plans can be stretched out over five years and allow you to enjoy all of the benefits of your energy efficiency upgrades today while you pay for them over time. In the past, energy efficiency upgrades were out of reach for most small and medium-sized businesses. But with Lime’s friendly LED and other upgrade financing, almost anyone can make these changes.

Utility Incentives

Did you know that most utility companies offer energy efficiency programs for their ratepayers, including special programs for their small business customers? In most territories where Lime Energy operates, utilities pay up to 70 percent of the cost of energy efficiency upgrades. Sometimes, utilities cover the entire bill!

Lime Energy to the Rescue

led upgrade financingWe have our own unique LED and other upgrade financing packages to sweeten the pot. Our standard offering gives small business owners a 12-month payment plan with 0 percent interest. And now we’re offering plans for as long as five years! These plans extend the cost of repayment over a year or more without placing any additional financial burden on you. Instead of paying the entire cost upfront, you can make payments as your energy savings roll in. Many small businesses cite the lack of capital as the reason they can’t undertake energy efficiency upgrades. These financing plans are the answer. They also create a cash flow positive environment because, in many cases, the energy savings are higher than the monthly payment.

Lime Gives You Choices

Our financing plans are extremely flexible. You don’t have to opt for the full 12-month payback. You can pay upfront, choose a shorter payback period and even extend the payback for longer than one year. With Lime Energy, it’s all about choices. We want you to be able to choose the upgrades and the financing options that are right for you. By providing customer financing plans, Lime Energy gives small and midsized businesses the power to choose the option they prefer while also reducing the upfront costs that discourage so many clean energy projects.


When it comes to customer satisfaction, Lime Energy’s energy efficient upgrades shine bright. Check out what our clients are saying about our energy conservation services.
