Denali National Park and Preserve

The most visited park in Alaska, Denali National Park and Preserve covers 6 million acres, located 300 miles south of the Arctic Circle. The iconic park acquired one plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) and one photovoltaic-powered charging station to help reduce emissions in Denali’s "Front Country," home to several campgrounds, visitor centers, and administration facilities. The PEV replaced a gasoline-powered vehicle typically driven short distances. The charging station, constructed by local students, paves the way for expanded use of PEVs in the area and helps educate park visitors on the importance of shifting to domestic energy sources and advanced vehicle technologies and reducing emissions.
