The two new 75 MW (megawatt) arrays will be located in Gilchrist County and Polk County on over 1,000 total acres, enabling us to harness the sun’s power without depending on sunny skies in solely one area. With this expansion, Disney will become one of the largest commercial consumers of solar in the state. More importantly, it will join the numerous steps Disney is taking to deliver on its 2030 goal of achieving net-zero emissions.

Both arrays are expected to be online by early 2023. Continuing Disney’s longstanding history of protecting the planet, combined they will introduce nearly a half million solar panels capable of producing over 375,000 MWh (megawatt hours) of carbon-free solar energy in their first full year of operation. This is the equivalent of removing 29,500 automobiles from the roads every year!

Stay tuned for more information on the ways Disney is working toward building a brighter, more sustainable future!
