When Populus Coworking first went public with plans to open in November of 2018, Founder Micah Yost received an email from Steve McGreer. The email itself wasn’t that atypical. “Let’s get coffee,” was the essence of the communication. About a week later, Yost and McGreer met at an Omaha Starbucks. They discussed business, life, and Steve’s new company Asset Environments. It was an exciting time for both Founders as the looked to the future of their young companies and planned for great things. 

Asset Environments has accomplished some incredible things since that meeting.

Asset Environments Omaha

Asset Environments would become one of the very first companies to join Populus Coworking. Since that first coffee meeting, Steve’s consulting group has quickly grown. The team started with a coworking membership, moved into a small office, and then moved to a larger office very quickly. Asset Environments works around Omaha, and across the country, providing building owners technical and financial solutions. One key service is helping with PACE financing. This is a special type of financing based on energy efficiency. In 2018, Asset Environments assisted Shamrock Development with the largest PACE financing deal in the country. As of mid-2020, Steve’s team has over $67 million in PACE financing deals approved.

In fact, the team has helped reduce about 4 million pounds of CO2 on a yearly basis. They do this trough working with control systems, heating, cooling, lighting, and many other factors in large buildings.
