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

The Park Service is accepting public comment until midnight Aug. 15 on the proposal.

The agency is looking at making 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 would 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.
