Grand Canyon National Park is an early pioneer of the NPS Go Green campaign. Its North Rim—which is more remote, less developed, and less visited than the South Rim—offers a serene and enthralling Grand Canyon experience. The North Rim’s integrated PV system is the primary power source for a combined visitor contact station and ranger residence.
