In partnership with The Rexel Corporation and local utilities, Lime Energy provides energy efficiency services free of charge to food banks across the country. For food pantries, soup kitchens, and other providers of free meals, the monthly savings earned through energy efficiency help feed families in need. Each dollar saved on energy costs means more meals for hungry families. The donated projects also include Lime SAVE™, our newest energy efficiency offering.
With SAVE™, Lime Energy offers small businesses an energy efficiency solution that guarantees monthly energy savings and requires no money out of pocket. Customers receive energy savings equipment and Lime Energy measures the energy savings created by the new equipment. As the business saves on its energy bill every month, Lime Energy measures the actual energy usage and energy bill savings achieved each month. By metering customer savings, Lime Energy can guarantee that a small business will never pay more for its energy efficiency than it saves on its monthly energy bill. For the food banks, the metered savings allows them to track how many additional meals they can provide.
Lime Energy is proud to help food pantries and we will continue to support the communities where we serve.
Every measured dollar saved is another three meals given since install.
