Disney World’s new solar farm to power two parks
Disney is teaming up with Reedy Creek Improvement District and solar project developer Origis Energy USA to bring a new 270-acre, 50-megawatt solar facility online by the end of the year at Walt Disney World Resort.
The new facility will generate enough solar power to power two of its theme parks in Central Florida. The new facility is part of Disney’s promise to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions by 50% compared to 2012. Construction on the new facility will start in the coming weeks and it will be located near Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park.
