In an effort to promote sustainability and reduce their carbon footprint, Walt Disney World has recently announced their plan to install two new solar arrays in 2023. These solar panels will be installed at two of the park’s most popular attractions – Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
The new solar arrays will generate a total of 75 megawatts of clean energy, which is enough to power thousands of homes for a year. This is a significant move towards achieving Disney’s goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, as it will help reduce their reliance on non-renewable energy sources.
The project is expected to create over 300 new job opportunities during the construction phase and ongoing maintenance and operations. This will not only promote sustainability but also contribute to the local economy.
Walt Disney World’s commitment to sustainability goes beyond their theme parks, with the company making a commitment to reducing single-use plastics and promoting sustainable sourcing across all their businesses. The addition of the new solar arrays is just one example of their ongoing efforts to conserve resources and reduce waste.
As visitors enjoy the park’s attractions, they can take comfort in knowing that their experience is powered by clean, renewable energy. With these new solar arrays, Walt Disney World is taking a significant step towards a more sustainable future.
