Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GRSM) will host two ribbon-cutting ceremonies to unveil new pieces of alternative fuel equipment. Propane mowers, neighborhood electric vehicles, and new charging stations will be available for viewing along with a fast-charge demonstration with a Nissan Leaf vehicle and a Tesla Model S vehicle. The Smokies are the first unit in the National Park Service to install and operate public DC fast-charging stations.

The event is open to all media outlets and the public.

The following officials will share brief remarks and be available for questions:
• GRSM Park Superintendent Cassius Cash
• East TN Clean Fuels Coalition Coordinator Jonathan Overly
• Land of Sky Clean Vehicles Coalition Coordinator Bill Eaker
• US DOE Clean Cities Representatives Trev Hall and Andrew Hudgins
• Great Smoky Mountains Association Executive Director Terry Maddox
• Nissan USA Southeast Representative Cornelius Willingham

The work was funded by the joint DOI/DOE “Clean Cities National Parks Initiative” which is helping multiple national parks advance their goals towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions from park operations and maintenance vehicles and improving air quality overall in and around the parks.
