Visit Salt Lake More to discover in the Crossroads of the West


Smart and beautiful The Salt Palace Convention Center has installed one of the country’s largest rooftop solar-panel installations — equivalent, at 198,000 square feet, to the size of five football fields.


Salt Lake is in the midst of a destination-wide renaissance with the recent opening of two museums, a massive $2-billion redevelop- ment project, and a new solar-energy instal- lation that makes meeting in the destination an even more eco-friendly experience. Directly across the street from the Salt


Palace Convention Center, City Creek is a new 23-acre, mixed-use development made up of 90-plus retail stores, restaurants, and more. Besides earning LEED Silver certification for its sustainable design, City Creek is unique for its retractable roofs that allow pedestrians to visit the outdoor shopping center year- round. Combined with the recent openings of the Natural History Museum of Utah and The Leonardo, it’s clear that Salt Lake is in the midst of an urban renewal. Sure to set a new standard for sustainable


meeting venues, the Salt Palace Convention Center’s new rooftop solar-panel installation debuted this past May. The 1.65-megawatt installation, which will produce 17 percent of the center’s annual needs, is part of a larger destination-wide goal to install a total of 10 megawatts of solar power on as many coun- ty-owned facilities as possible.
