Yellowstone National Park acquired a plug-in electric vehicle and installed publicly accessible electric vehicle charging stations. The project supports a broader effort to expand clean transportation options within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The park has already added an electric utility vehicle, hybrid electric vehicles, and a hybrid electric bus to its fleet. With help from the Yellowstone-Teton Clean Energy Coalition, the park also enhanced public outreach for idle reduction efforts.

Grand Teton National Park

Grand Teton National Park added one plug-in electric hybrid vehicle to its fleet and installed three electric vehicle charging stations. The park also added five hybrid electric vehicles to its fleet. The installation of the charging stations supports an initiative to grow a larger regional electric vehicle infrastructure network. This initiative will introduce quick-charge stations and electric vehicle use to the heart of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and set the stage for government agencies, local business, residents, and visitors to begin using charging stations throughout the area. Working with Yellowstone-Teton Clean Energy Coalition, the park has launched an extensive education and outreach effort designed to eliminate unnecessary engine idling, reduce fuel consumption, and improve local air quality.
