Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks get $200K for electric vehicles
|April 25, 2015||View for printing|
Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks have teamed up with a clean energy coalition to secure more than $200,000 to add a plug-in hybrid electric car to their vehicle fleets and to install six public electric vehicle charging stations.
As the regional designee of the Department of Energy's Clean Cities National Parks Initiative, the Yellowstone-Teton Clean Energy Coalition worked with both national parks to identify and submit a request for funding.
Their next goal is to encourage gateway communities to install charging stations.
Electric cars are not cheap. A Tesla S runs well over $100K fully loaded.
The people who drive these cars are successful business owners and potential investors.
Help make them feel welcome in your community by putting the charging station in the center of town close to services and entertainment. They can explore the best your community has to offer while their cars recharge.
You never know. Maybe one of them will decide your community would be a great place to start a company or invest in one.
