Dr. Zak, Conservation Manager with Disney Conservation, explains “Solar energy production is a critical component of fighting the climate crisis,” and is excited to announce that this solar facility off of State Road 429 provides energy to power two out of the four Walt Disney World theme parks.
Not only does this solar facility provide energy with its emerging technology, but it also creates habitat for the species that live in Central Florida, such as native plants, bees, butterflies, grasshoppers, and more.
This, in turn, creates pollinator habitats that provide benefits for pollinators and other wildlife.
In Florida, there are over 200 different types of butterflies and 300 different types of bees. You can watch the video below in full.
