First National Park to Install a DC Charger

Clean Cities National Parks Initiative

In partnership with its two neighboring DOE “Clean Cities” coalitions—the East Tennessee Clean Fuels Coalition (ETCleanFuels) and the Land-of-Sky Clean Vehicles Coalition—the Great Smoky Mountains National Park became the first national park in the country to install DC fast chargers for electric vehicles in two of its visitor centers.  The park also implemented five gasoline mowers and three new low-speed electric vehicles for localized use as part of the National Park Service’s Climate Friendly Parks program.  This project highlights the leadership of the Smoky Mountains National Park in reducing emissions in the park and helping the public join in that effort.   View the video about this milestone project on DOE’s Clean Cities TV channel.
