Major New 270-Acre Solar Facility in Walt Disney World

A giant new 270-acre, 50-megawatt solar facility is up and running to provide renewable clean energy to Walt Disney World! Built in collaboration with Reedy Creek Improvement District and Origis Energy USA, this is huge news for the Sunshine State.

This facility is expected to produce enough solar power to operate two out of the four theme parks in Central Florida per year. It will also play a part in The Walt Disney Company’s 2020 goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50% since 2012.

Check out this time-lapse video (filmed with a solar-powered camera) of how the facility came to life:  

This project is a huge leap forward in Disney’s efforts to reduce emissions and definitely something worth celebrating. This is the second of two large solar facilities in Walt Disney World – the first was opened in 2016 and is a 22-acre, 5-megawatt facility shaped like Mickey Mouse.

Next time you visit WDW, you might see these fields of solar panels and think about how much of your trip is powered by the sun! You can also follow Disney’s Animals, Science, and Environment page on Facebook for updates on the new solar facility and other environmental projects.
