New Solar Facility to Service WDW Resort and Power Two Theme Parks 1

Walt Disney World continues to make strides toward conservation and preserving the environment with new developments always in the works.  A new initiative with the Reedy Creek Improvement District and solar project developer Origis Energy USA  to bring a 270 acre, 50-megawatt solar energy facility that will power two of the four theme parks at Walt Disney World.

The facility will be located near Disney’s Animal Kingdom park and construction will begin this year.  “This solar facility will include half a million solar panels and will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 57,000 tons per year. That’s the annual equivalent of removing 9,300 automobiles from the roads. More broadly, this initiative will join the numerous efforts The Walt Disney Company has launched to deliver its 2020 goal of reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by 50% compared to 2012.”-Disney Parks Blog

Disney revealed that another solar facility near Epcot was developed with Reedy Creek as well. The two facilities together will provide up to 25% of the power needs at Walt Disney World.  Continue to check back as we provide you the most up to date information about these new Earth Day inspired projects.
