One down, 499,999 to go! We are excited to announce 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 our four Disney theme parks here in Central Florida.
This project marks another milestone in our commitment to conservation and environmental stewardship here 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.
