A new solar facility built at Walt Disney World, in collaboration with the Reedy Creek Improvement District and Origis Energy USA, is now online and providing renewable clean energy to the resort.
The 270-acre 50-megawatt facility should provide enough power annually to operate two theme parks, which will help The Walt Disney Company meet its goal of reducing emissions by 50% by 2020 (when compared with 2012).

This new facility joins the 22-acre 5-megawatt facility shaped like Mickey Mouse that was built in 2016 near Epcot.
Here’s a look at how it came together:
