In February we told you about a new solar farm Disney was planning to build at the western edge of the Walt Disney World Resort property. Recent permits filed with the South Florida Water Management District now reveal the scope of that project, and it is huge.
This project is a 50 megawatt solar facility that will cover 295 acres, which is roughly one and a half times the size of the Seven Seas Lagoon. You can get a sense of the scale of the project from the image above, where the blue area will be completely covered with 518,000 solar panel modules.
We expect that construction will start soon and be completed by the end of the year.
