Lime Energy helps kick clean energy onto the global field

Lime Energy teams up with Unchartered Play, the creators of sOccket, to empower communities in need

Huntersville, NC, December  15 — Lime Energy Co.
(NASDAQ: LIME) announced today the beginning of a sponsorship agreement with Unchartered Play, the creators of sOccketTM, a portable source of clean, renewable energy designed to help families in need.

The sOccket is a durable soccer ball that harnesses the kinetic energy of the ball during normal game play and stores it for later power needs.  After just 30 minutes of play, small electrical appliances, like an LED lamp, can be plugged into the sOccket for 3
hours of electricity.  “Lime’s purpose is to secure a clean energy future and this sponsorship aligns to our values as a company,” said John O’Rourke, Lime President and CEO.  “The creators of sOccket have developed a enewable resource that taps into the global passion for the game of soccer and creates a lasting solution to the growing energy crisis.”

“Imagine everything you do after the sun goes down? Without electricity many of those things would be impossible. In partnership with Lime Energy, we are able to give the gift of reliable, sustainable electricity to communities that live everyday without lights” said Unchartered Play’s cofounder, Jessica Mathews.  “The sOccket can save resource poor families 10% or more on their annual expenses while at the same time providing a durable soccer ball that has over a 3 year life span.”

As part of the sponsorship with Unchartered Play, Lime Energy is launching a section on their website that will serve as a social platform to engage with their customers.   “Our customers will be able to visit our website and choose where in the world they would like to send sOcckets,” said Adam Procell, Executive Vice President of Lime Energy.  “This is a way to honor the commitment that
our energy efficiency and renewable energy customers have made to clean energy while providing a tangible investment in resource-poor communities around the world.”
