Jackson, WY (AP) - National Park Service officials have signed off on a plan designed to improve Yellowstone National Park's electrical grid.

The plan will bring new electrical towers to electrical substations in the park, as well as a new tower outside the park.

Park spokesman Al Nash says a history of power outages in Yellowstone provided the push for the plan

According to the Jackson Hole News & Guide, Yellowstone's power plan calls for new buildings to house equipment at the Mammoth, Norris, Canyon Lake, Old Faithful and Madison substations.

The cost or time required to complete the projects were not available.
