Yosemite National Park to Install 539-Kilowatt Solar Array
National Park System Goes Solar-
This coming June, Yosemite National Park will begin construction on the largest grid-tied solar photovoltaic installation in the U.S. National Park System. With $4.4 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the 539-kilowatt array will be built at the park’s maintenance complex in El Portal and is anticipated to save up to $104,000 on an annual basis. The pioneering project will also double the amount of electricity generated by renewable energy in the Pacific West region of the Park Service – which includes 58 sites.
