After opening an Iowa City electrical supply location in 1995, Van Meter outgrew its original facility and needed room to expand. In 2011, it built a LEED-certified facility that saves more than $25,000 each year on utilities by incorporating many of the clean energy products and services available to customers. The 24,000-square-foot facility offers an up-close look at how the products Van Meter sells can help reduce carbon footprints. The building also offers an indoor drive-thru, a high-tech training center, and a large customer service sales counter.
