New 270-Acre Solar Facility Now Online, Providing Clean Energy to Walt Disney World

The Walt Disney Company recently shared some big news from the Sunshine State today. Built in collaboration with the Reedy Creek Improvement District and Origis Energy USA, a massive new 270-acre, 50-megawatt solar facility is officially online and providing renewable clean energy to the Walt Disney World Resort!

This facility is expected to generate enough power from the sun to operate two of our four theme parks in Central Florida annually. It will also significantly reduce net greenhouse gas emissions, joining the numerous efforts The Walt Disney Company has launched to deliver its 2020 goal of reducing emissions by 50% compared to 2012.

Check out this time-lapse video – filmed with a solar-powered camera – to see how the facility has come to life.

This project is certainly a giant leap forward in the resort's emissions efforts, but it’s not the first. You may remember hearing about the 22-acre, 5-megawatt solar facility shaped like Mickey Mouse that opened in 2016. So next time your travels bring you to Walt Disney World Resort, know that your visit may be partly powered by the sun.
