Feds to give Zion National Park 3 electric cars
Question of the Day
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Rangers and others at Zion National Park will soon take the wheel behind a handful of electric cars under a new federal grant.
The U.S. Department of Energy and others are giving three rechargeable vehicles to Zion and its sister park, Pipe Spring National Monument, in a grant geared at national parks.
Park spokeswoman Aly Baltrus says in an email statement the park will swap out three of its current cars for two hybrids and one all-electric vehicle.
Officials plan to set up ten charging stations and make half available to visitors.
The stations are set to pop up at visitor centers in Zion Canyon, Kolob Canyons and Pipe Spring.
Park officials on Friday said they hope to buy the vehicles this year and build the charging stations in fall.
