Ribbon Cutting For Airport Rental Car Service Facility

Environmental benefits of the rental car facility include approximately 154,000 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) greenhouse gases avoided by the use of renewable energy since mid-October 2009 when the facility began operations.  Over 95% of construction waste was recycled or reused. At least three-quarters of the facility’s energy usage is generated on-site from a 159 kW solar collection system consisting of 816 photovoltaic panels. The combination of the facility’s efficiency features and renewable energy generation translates to a 97% savings in energy costs compared to traditional construction. 

The $6.3M rental car facility includes a 10,000 square foot light maintenance and support building, car wash bays, a fueling operation, and secure storage for more than 300 vehicles. While vehicle rentals remain adjacent to the Airline Terminal, the 3.6 acre ‘quick-turn-around’ operation off Hollister Avenue replaces the rental car service area at the Terminal.  Tours of the facility will be offered to those in attendance following the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.
