First Panel Installed at New Solar Facility Providing Power to Walt Disney World

The Walt Disney World Resort recently announced that the first of half a million solar panels was recently installed at the previously-announced new 270-acre, 50-megawatt solar facility, which is being developed in collaboration with the Reedy Creek Improvement District and Origis Energy USA to provide power to Walt Disney World Resort.

When completed in just a few months, this facility will, on average, generate enough renewable clean energy to equate to powering two of Disney's theme parks here in Central Florida.

This project marks another milestone in the commitment to conservation and environmental stewardship at Disney, a tradition that began with Walt Disney himself and has continued with the dedication of our Cast Members today. And, as mentioned in the recent New York Times article highlighting this project, Disney’s sustainability leadership is providing inspiration at a global level.

Cast Members from Disney’s Animal, Science and Environment and Horticulture teams are playing an integral role in the development of the facility, including their efforts to make the site pollinator friendly and safe for endangered species of butterflies, bees and other insects.
