New 270-Acre Solar Facility Now Providing Clean, Renewable Energy to Walt Disney World Resort
Disney just shared some pretty big news with us. Like, 270-acre big. Built in collaboration with the Reedy Creek Improvement District (RCID) and Origis Energy USA, a massive new 50-megawatt solar facility is officially online and providing renewable clean energy to Walt Disney World Resort!
This facility is expected to generate enough power from the sun to operate two of Walt Disney World’s four theme parks annually. It will also significantly reduce net greenhouse gas emissions. With this, the Walt Disney Company is officially on track to deliver its 2020 goal of reducing emissions by 50% compared to 2012.
Check out this time-lapse video – filmed with a solar-powered camera – to see how the facility has come to life:
