New Museum Building
The Natural History Museum of Utah’s new home, The Rio Tinto Center, is aspiring to become one of 18 LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified buildings thus far in the State of Utah. With the announcement in April of a new partnership with Rocky Mountain Power, the Museum was able to add one more green element that will certainly continue its march toward Gold Certification.
The energy partnership includes a grant from Rocky Mountain Power that allows for a sizeable solar photovoltaic system installed on the site later this year.
The Natural History Museum of Utah at the University of Utah and Rocky Mountain Power announced today a proactive partnership to increase the energy efficiency performance and showcase forms of energy and their use at the Rio Tinto Center, the new home of the Natural History Museum of Utah.
