Solar Farm

As we reported earlier this year,  Disney is partnering up with Origis Energy USA to construct a new Solar Farm located near to Animal Kingdom theme park.  This colossal 270-acre facility will supply 50-megawatts which is enough to power two theme parks.

Our very own Chip was in the area this week and managed to snag the following photos of the project:

You can clearly see construction vehicles and a work site in the area.

This is what the completed solar panels look like when erected.

This new facility will combine with already existing solar farms including the Hidden Mickey-shaped panels located near Epcot.  Combined, this will allow the solar farms to collectively produce up to 25% of the power need to run Walt Disney World.

This is part of The Walt Disney Company’s longstanding commitment to reduce greenhouse gases across its Orlando properties.
