It is located on almost 4 hectares of the Terrazas del Portezuelo Native Park, on the same property as the Ecological Government House.
The Photovoltaic Solar Park is part of the chain of actions that earned the House of Government of San Luis the certification of the Climate Change Foundation, directed by Al Gore. “The Terrazas del Portezuelo Administrative Decentralization building was inaugurated on July 9, 2010 and, in October 2011, the Climate Change Foundation, chaired by Al Gore, awarded the Government of the Province the certification as the first public ecological building in the country ”, Explained the Minister of the Environment, Daiana Hissa.

The last step necessary to achieve the self-sustainability of this unique building in the country was to produce energy.
