Optimized Systems Expands to Iowa

Optimized Systems is pleased to announce its expansion into Iowa with the opening of a new office in the Des Moines area. Located at 9550 White Oak Lane, Suite 100, Johnston, IA 50131, the new office is led by Nick Terhall, a licensed professional engineer and Iowa native.

“We are building on Optimized Systems’ success in Omaha and Denver, and this expansion is an opportunity for new growth for our company, while serving the energy conservation and sustainability needs of Des Moines and surrounding communities,” said Terhall. “We are committed to providing energy-saving solutions to businesses and organizations throughout central Iowa, and with the recent launch of the City of Des Moines’ new ADAPT DSM plan calling for improving energy efficiency in buildings, the timing couldn’t be better,” commented Terhall.

Optimized Systems’ energy optimization strategies utilize a building’s existing equipment, eliminating the need for large capital outlays.

It’s all about achieving that delicate balance between energy efficiency, comfort, and safety. It’s what we do,” stated Kmiecik.
