A North Carolina energy services company is moving to Newark, bringing at least 10 jobs with it, the firm announced Tuesday.Lime Energy Co., which currently has 25 employees in New Jersey, will have 20 workers based at the downtown office tower after the move from Huntersville, North Carolina, CEO and President Adam Procell told NJBIZ.
“It is exciting for Lime Energy to formalize our longstanding commitment to New Jersey, where we created our innovative business model and have been developing clean energy solutions for years,” Procell said in a prepared statement. “Our Newark location provides us with great connectivity — to the Northeast Corridor, to higher education and top talent, as well as to an important urban center.”
Lime, which serves utilities and their small and mid-sized commercial customers, is taking space at Three Gateway Center, it said in a news release.
“We are delighted that Lime Energy is moving its corporate headquarters to Newark and Three Gateway Center,” Maurice Ades, managing partner of building owner Rugby Realty, said in a statement.
The company said in its release that it entered the New Jersey market in 2009 with its small and mid-sized business energy efficiency programs. Some 18 months ago, the management of the SMB unit was chosen to run the company as a whole, Lime said, and the public sector business unit was sold to a North Carolina-based firm.
Lime also has its Northeast Regional Operations Center in Woodbridge.
