Troy will be working part-time during the upcoming spring semester, and will continue full-time over the summer. He will be assisting our engineering team in PACE energy studies, energy modeling, and building assessments.
Welcome to the team Troy!
The $2,000 per unit tax credit for energy efficient apartments was scheduled to expire as of December 31 of this year. However, a bill was recently passed by Congress that includes a 1-year extension of the tax credit through 2021.
For companies that develop multifamily apartment buildings, this means that you may be eligible for a $2,000 per unit tax credit in 2021. The credits are for federal income of the owner of the building at the time of construction. The three primary requirements are:
If you or your clients have multifamily construction projects in construction or planned for 2021, we can perform the evaluation and documentation necessary to obtain these tax credits. For further information we can be reached at 402.990.5506 or email@example.com.
Congrats to the GreenSlate and Clarity teams on the Cottonwood Hotel opening! It’s an amazing property and project, and holds a special place for us since it was our first PACE study. Three years later we’re working on study number 40 and counting…
From the Omaha World Herald:
The GreenSlate-Clarity ownership team aims to reclaim the hotel's storied reputation as the epicenter of Omaha's social life. "We now have a showcase for Omaha," McLeay said, noting that other growing metro areas have historic hotels as central gathering points. "I'm thrilled we're able to do our part to bring this element of Omaha's history back to the city."
Asset Environments is growing and has moved to new larger office space. We are really excited about the transition and are looking forward to providing our clients with the same great service in this new location!

There are different technologies out there that can help HVAC systems in buildings against COVID-19. Here is a video on a couple of options that you may find interesting. Feel free to give us a call at 402-990-5506 if you'd like to talk more about them.
For those interested in solar power, OPPD made rate 464 non-mandatory in their June board meeting. This is a great step in the right direction in allowing not only more, but also larger solar installations in the Omaha area!

Over the last weekend we completed the removal of a 250-hp fan and installed a new 16-cube fanwall at the OWH Building. Check out the video below for a 16 hour time lapse from start of demolition to installation of the cubes!

In the background are boxes that contain a total of 9,835 LED bulbs, which will replace all of the lighting throughout the Omaha World Herald / NICO building in downtown Omaha. The retrofits will save over half a million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, which is equal to 47 homes' electricity use!
