New Disney Solar Field Coming Soon - Will Be Able to Power 2 Theme Parks!

Walt Disney World Resort recently started a new initiative in collaboration with the Reedy Creek Improvement District and solar project developer Origis Energy USA to bring a new 270-acre, 50-megawatt solar facility to Disney World by the end of the year. The new solar field will generate enough renewable clean energy to power two of its four theme parks in Central Florida!


The facility will be located near Disney’s Animal Kingdom, with construction beginning in the coming months. This solar facility will include half a million solar panels and will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 57,000 tons per year - equivalent of removing 9,300 automobiles from the roads.


This solar field will join the recently unveiled five-megawatt solar facility near Epcot that was developed with the Reedy Creek Improvement District and Duke Energy. During the sun’s peak hours when it is shining brightest, these two facilities together will generate enough renewable clean energy to provide up to 25 percent of the power needs at Walt Disney World Resort.
