Crater Lake National Park, home of the deepest freshwater lake in the world, is an early pioneer of the NPS Go Green campaign. PV panels provide power to Crater Lake’s North Entrance Fee Station, which has no connection to a commercial power source. The PV system eliminates the need for a noisy diesel generator.
