The Sunshine State is a suitable state to rely on solar energy to run facilities.

Five years after installing its first solar installation, Disney World has announced plans to double its number of solar installations in Florida.

The theme park giant announced in April that it was developing two new 75 MW solar installations. The new facilities are expected to be commissioned in about two years.

Disney already has two solar sites to help power its resort in central Florida. One facility is a 22-acre solar farm in the form of the iconic Mickey Mouse logo, and the other complex spans 270 acres and provides 57 MW of electricity. When complete, the four facilities will produce enough renewable energy to power up to 40% of Disney’s total energy use, the company says.

The facilities are part of Disney’s commitment to achieve net zero emissions in its parks by 2030. Disney’s solar program also extends to international properties as well as its cruise line.
