The Albuquerque International Sunport is an iconic New Mexico landmark welcoming travelers to the majestic Land of Enchantment. As part of the City of Albuquerque’s ongoing efforts to maintain and perfect the facility, the solar powered Sunport VALE Long-Term Parking Improvement was added just north of the multi-story parking structure off Sunport Boulevard. The project made use of an existing exposed parking lot, which has since been transformed into 100% American-made solar powered covered parking area, known as the Economy Lot.
Over 160 auger penetrations were made so that steel columns could be cast to hold up the 4,060 photovoltaic panels to power the structure. With the utilization of solar power, the efficiency will meet the city’s desire to utilize renewable energy and commitment to finding alternative forms of energy to power public structures. The Sunport VALE Long-Term parking structure is a great addition to New Mexico. Proudly this is a product of all American-made materials with the support of local contractors and designers. The new covered area will protect over 400 long-term vehicles against weathering while adding to vitality of the New Mexico’s first stop for travelers. For News Clip, click Here
