YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — The National Park Service is seeking public comment on some proposed infrastructure improvements at the historic Lamar Buffalo Ranch in Yellowstone National Park.

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

The project seeks to 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 Park Service wants public comment to help prepare an environmental assessment of the improvements.

The Lamar Buffalo Ranch is located about 10 miles from the nearest electric service. It has an existing solar energy system that was installed in 1996.
