 The plant is being done in partnership and through a co-investment with French company Urbasolar, which specializes in construction and operation of solar power plants.  The project will be built over the resort’s main guest parking lot in phases through 2023 and aims to increase the amount of renewable energy produced and consumed locally by Disneyland ParisThe site is being built on top of the current guest parking lot, and capable of supplying 33 Gigawatt hours per year, or 15 percent of the resort’s annual energy usage.

 The milestone comes on the heels of the destination’s phased reopening of its two parks, Disney Village and Disney’s Newport Bay Club Hotel that began last week, as well as the restart of other construction and refurbishment projects at Disneyland Paris.
