The Denver International Airport just built the “greenest” large parking lot in the world according to the Dever Post. There are solar pannels and windmills. Here is the link.
Many other parking lots are being built with porous material and other strategies that allows rain water to reach the ground and not “run off”. The Morton Arboretum in Lisle, IL has a great new parking lot built this way.
