Sid and Nadine Malchow own the Hi-Lo Supper Club & Catering in Lakefield, MN, and have been an important thread in their community’s fabric over the years. In fact, the Hi-Lo Restaurant & Catering has been proudly serving Southwest Minnesota and Northern Iowa with fine dining for over 65 years, and the Malchows have been providing catering services for over 25 years.
Now, thanks to Property Accessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing, they were able to make lots of improvements to their establishment. Among other things, they upgraded their lighting on their exterior, the main floor and the basement, installed efficient air conditioning and fan motors, and upgraded the furnaces in the main dining room and food preparation area.
“PACE allowed this business to make several energy saving improvements,” notes Robin Weis, Economic Development Director with the Southwest Regional Development Commission. “The LED lighting portion was most exciting for me as they used a lighting specialist who assisted them in making sure the lighting would be just right in the various locations in the building.”
