Meridian worked with Mark Richey to install a medium scale wind turbine generator for use at the facility. The displacement of retail energy costs through net metering provides economic incentives to support the philosophy of Mr. Richey. The construction of this medium scale turbine augments the biomass furnace which uses pulp and wood waste from the cabinetry operation to heat the woodworking facility.
