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.

A friend told me he developed a bad flinch while sighting in his .300 Win […]
