SALT LAKE CITY — A private school in a Salt Lake County suburb will have zero energy impact.
It was reported that the owners of the Sego Lilly School in Murray are using shipping containers to build the first phase of the new school. Construction will start in March.
Designer Alyssa Kay says the school will be powered by a wind turbine and solar panels on the school’s grounds. The building will be energy efficient, with lights that automatically turn off when the natural light is sufficient.
The first phase of the school will cost about $650,000, and will be used the school’s 45 current students. A second phase, costing about $1.5 million, will increase the school’s capacity to 150 students.
