NEWARK – Energy efficiency services provider Lime Energy Co. is planning to move its corporate headquarters to Newark, it announced on Friday.

The Huntsville, N.C.-based company said the move is designed to further its newfound focus on efficiency programs for small and mid-sized businesses. Lime Energy works primarily with large utilities, including PSE&G, and their commercial customers.

Plans for the relocation began about 18 months ago, when New Jersey-based SMB Energy Services was selected to run the company, it said. Its Northeast Regional Operations Center was already located in Woodbridge, and will remain there.

Lime Energy did not disclose exactly when the move will take place, or how many jobs it might add in Newark. The new headquarters will be located at Three Gateway Center, next to Newark Penn Station.

In a statement, president and CEO Adam Procell said Newark would provide the company with "great connectivity" to other Northeast cities, as well as access to higher education and a talented workforce.

"This move allows us to continue 'walking the walk' in our commitment to sustainability and to supporting the communities where we work and live," he said.
