“Xanterra Travel Collection, a global adventure travel company and the largest national park concessionaire in the U.S., today announced new solar installations in 2018 that will help provide clean, renewable energy for facilities in several of the country’s iconic national parks, including Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona and Death Valley National Park in California, plus Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota.
