An environmentally advanced parking lot

A new parking lot constructed at Denver airport claims to be the most environmentally advanced open-air parking lot in North America.

The parking lot includes 4,200-spaces and it incorporates virtually every green construction innovation available, including water-permeable pavement, contaminated water treatment, solar-electric energy, wind turbines, geothermal heating systems, state of-the-art LED lighting and electric vehicle charging stations.

The energy consumption of the lot is estimated to be about 30% of what a conventional facility would use – and since customers are paying the same as they would at the other car parks, that means significantly more revenue for the owners and operators, as well as a significant range of environmental benefits. It would be interesting to know, however, the entity of the capital investment and the expected payback period, given the generally low prices charged at US airports!
