Most people have heard about the giant Mickey Mouse shaped solar farm located at Walt Disney World and it now looks as if plans are underway to create another massive solar facility on Disney property. According to a recent agreement and easement between Reedy Creek Improvement District and Orgis energy, the new farm will be built along State Road 429 and will be much larger than it’s Mouse-shaped counterpart.
The new facility will provide solar power to the Reedy Creek Improvement District and by extension Walt Disney World. The farm will be located on 270 acres in Orange County and will consist of roughly 518, 000 solar panels that will connect to Reedy Creek’s power distribution system. It is estimated that the new facility will create up to 300 jobs with the project getting underway in late Spring and finishing up by the end of 2018.
