Grand Teton National Park
In 2011, Grand Teton National Park added five hybrid electric vehicles to its fleet. Subsequently in 2014, the park added one plug-in hybrid electric vehicle and installed three electric vehicle charging stations. The installation of the charging stations supports an initiative to grow a larger regional electric vehicle infrastructure network. This initiative introduced charging 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 Cities, the park has launched an extensive education and outreach effort designed to eliminate unnecessary engine idling, reduce fuel consumption, and improve local air quality.
