Living Meadows receives funding for heating and cooling upgrades

March 7, 2023

Living Meadows at Luther Madelia is making improvements to increase quality of life for its residents. The facility is upgrading their heating and cooling system to offer better efficiencies.

Madelia Municipal Light & Power (MMLP) partnered with the utility’s wholesale power provider, Heartland Energy, to offer the facility $17,500 in incentives to assist with the upgrade project.

MMLP provided Living Meadows $10,000 as part of the Conservation Improvement Program, which is designed to help Minnesota households and businesses use  electricity more efficiently. CIP is funded by ratepayers and administered by utilities.

Heartland Energy provides incentives as part of its Power Forward program to help increase efficiencies in the communities they serve.

Living Meadows is in the process of replacing three different units on the building, which was originally built in 1958.
