The San Luis Port of Entry will get a Green facelift.

The U. S. Genral Services Administration has announced nearly $100 million in funding for " low-embodied carbon construction materials and emerging and sustainable technology to be used as part of the San Luis I Port of Entry project. The $98.9 million project, slated for completion in 2028, will incorporate water-saving features, advanced insulation materials, and energy-efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. The upgrades will allow the port, the second busiest non-commercial vehicle port in Arizona, to operate efficiently in the desert environment. The project includes all-electric, net zero energy features including a substantial solar panel installation and microgrid system with battery storage to power the port 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, independent of the electric grid. The San Luis port currently processes over three million vehicles and 2.5 million pedestrians annually.
