YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) - The National Park Service has approved a plan to make infrastructure improvements at the historic Lamar Buffalo Ranch in Yellowstone National Park.

The planned improvements to various energy production systems at the ranch aim to conserve water and energy and reduce waste. For instance, one project involves installing a new micro hydro turbine.

The Park Service says the project will increase the renewable energy available for use at the ranch and reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of the current fossil fuel-powered generator currently in operation.

The Lamar Buffalo Ranch is a National Register Historic District. It’s about 10 miles from the nearest electric service and has an existing solar energy system that was installed in 1996.
