Excerpt of a Letter from Beggs Public Schools
People come from all over the nation to see them. They are wonderful. We recently looked at the past year’s savings in utilities in these buildings verses traditional style buildings of the same size.
We have a dome classroom building of 10,000 square feet that cost $5,500.00 for the 2006-2007 school year (12 months) to heat and cool. A metal classroom building of the same size cost $30,650.00 for the same year.
Our Event Center Dome is 30,000 square feet. The cost for electricity for it during the 2006-2007 school year was $6,600.00 and another metal building of the same size cost $42,000.00 for that year.
