Those of you who’ve been following Colorado’s bid to boast the world’s greenest parking facility at the Denver International Airport will be pleased to know that the project is coming along ahead of schedule, and is now slated to be open sometime in the middle of next month.
The project, formerly known as Green Park–and now, perhaps less memorably, as Canopy Airport Parking–is located at 8100 Tower Road and will showcase a virtual smorgasbord of renewable energy technologies, including solar, geothermal, and wind energy. Shuttles fueled by natural gas, biodiesel and hybrid electric/gas will service the facility.
In another plus for green-minded travelers, Greenscape Capital Group (the builders behind the project) recently announced that the Canopy Airport Parking Facility will also feature a “Garage Juice Bar”– a.k.a., charging stations for electric vehicles. This high-power Level-2 EV charging station with the SAE-approved J-1772 charge point (compatible with all makes of electric cars) was created in conjunction with BMW Group DesignworksUSA and will offer charging services for free.
