The Heating and Cooling Provider of Choice for Omaha’s Downtown Businesses

Cordia Omaha provides energy-efficient and environmentally sound district heating and cooling for the central business district of Omaha, including Woodman Tower, Creighton University, and the Joslyn Art Museum. Its customer base includes more than 70 percent of all other public and commercial buildings in the downtown area. The system’s steam and chilled water service maintains a 99.99% reliability record.

The system leverages a variety of conventional fuels, depending on which is most cost-competitive at a given time, and incorporates cogeneration technology — a highly efficient combination of heat and mechanical power — to reduce the amount of energy lost up the smokestack. This technology and fuel flexibility keeps costs down, preserves natural resources, and reduces emissions compared to traditional heating and cooling equipment.
