Glacier National Park is an early pioneer and sustaining member of the NPS Go Green campaign. The seasonally open visitor center just south of the Canadian border obtains its electricity from over 3,600 W of solar panels (an older 1,280-W rooftop PV system and a newer 2,320-W system). Both are integrated into the site to enhance visual quality.
