Solar Energy Projects

In line with the Park System's commitment to the pursuit of ecologically sound practices, we have completed several solar projects.  So far, the Park System has installed solar photovoltaic systems on five facilities. The installation of solar photovoltaic systems puts the Park System in the forefront in the movement towards renewable energy with minimal out-of-pocket expense.
