Walt Disney World’s New 270-Acre Solar Facility Now Online Providing Enough Power for Two Theme Parks!

Solar Power Facility at Walt Disney World Resort

This week the Walt Disney World Resort announced that its new 270-acre solar facility is now online. This 50-megawatt solar facility was built in collaboration with Reedy Creek Improvement District and Origis Energy USA to bring clean energy to the Walt Disney World Resort.

The new facility is expected to draw enough solar energy to be able to power two of the four theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort. It will also reduce net greenhouse gas emissions. This is all part of The Walt Disney Company’s goal to bring down emissions by 50% by 2020 from the starting point of 2012.

Disney filmed a time-lapse video of the development of the new facility. It was of course filmed with a solar-powered camera.

This new solar facility continues the trend of building solar power facilities at the Walt Disney World Resort. In 2016 Disney opened a 22-acre, 5-megawatt solar facility in the shape of a Mickey Mouse.
