Energy-Efficient Lights for GTNP

GTNPF

The National Park Foundation recently awarded Grand Teton National Park with a 2012 Impact Grant to help launch an energy saving project to replace 60 halogen lamps with energy efficient LED lamps in the historic Crandall Studio adjacent Jenny Lake.  Strings of track lights provide illumination for interpretive exhibits, historic artwork and retail displays for the bookstore, as well as for general lighting throughout the building. Replacement of inefficient 50-watt halogen lamps with 9.5-watt LED lamps will provide the same level of lighting, but result in a substantial savings in energy use and cost. The grant is part of the National Park Foundation’s Impact Grant program which gives parks the critical financial support needed to transform innovative, yet underfunded ideas into successful in-park programs and initiatives.

On defense, the Cowboys top priority is to stop the run.  With a talented quarterback […]

    A weak ridge of high pressure will build over the region today, which will allow temperatures to become warmer and closer to average statewide.  However, some lingering low-level moisture and daytime heating could trigger a few hit or miss thunderstorms for the afternoon and early evening hours.  Gusty winds and lots of lightning will be […]
  • GPS will sometimes lead you to astray - August 29, 2014
    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
