Nationwide earns ENERGY STAR with Meidh

The Nationwide facility at 1100 Locust Street in Des Moines earned its ENERGY STAR Label on Friday with the help of Meidh Corporation.  This Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) distinction means that the Nationwide building is one of the most energy efficient buildings in the country.Meidh, an ENERGY STAR Partner and Des Moines based startup, worked with Nationwide to develop the ENERGY STAR building model.  An effective ENERGY STAR model provides an energy efficiency baseline to measure operational improvements at a facility.

“It is exciting to work with an organization like Nationwide,” says Meidh CEO Chris Draper.  “Many of the companies in Des Moines are more green than they think – we enjoy helping them earn their well deserved accolades.”

Of the over 25,000,000 square feet of commercial property that the Meidh team has benchmarked in ENERGY STAR, only a fraction of that portfolio are properties in Iowa.  Draper hopes the Nationwide project will be the first of many new Iowa properties that achieve the distinction.

“We’re proud of our national success,” comments Draper.  “We’re now looking forward to making an even greater impact in our local community.”
