Walt Disney World Doubling Their Solar Capability In 2023

Walt Disney World Resort’s available solar energy resources will more than double with two new solar arrays in 2023.

The two new 75 MW (megawatt) arrays will be located in Gilchrist County and Polk County on over 1,000 total acres, enabling Disney to generate solar power without depending on sunny skies in solely one area.

With this expansion, Disney will become one of the largest commercial consumers of solar in the state as the company moves towards delivering its 2030 goal of achieving net-zero emissions.

When operational, Walt Disney World will be powered by 40% solar energy.

Both arrays are expected to be online by early 2023. Combined they will introduce nearly a half million solar panels capable of producing over 375,000 MWh (megawatt hours) of carbon-free solar energy in their first full year of operation. This is the equivalent of removing 29,500 automobiles from the roads every year.
