Lamar Buffalo Ranch Sustainable Energy Project - Environmental Assessment

The National Park Service (NPS) proposes to implement a variety of sustainability improvements at the Lamar Buffalo Ranch. Proposed changes include: replace the existing photovoltaic system, further improve and insulate the building envelopes to reduce energy demand, install a micro hydro system, add a solar thermal heating system in the existing bathhouse, and add energy monitoring displays in the buildings. The NPS also proposes to relocate and update the weather station, move one existing sleeping cabin, and expand the existing bookstore to allow for administrative offices.
