Micky Mouse Goes Solar

Recently, we wrote about new shapes for solar farms, and now there’s one uniquely at Disney World in Florida.

It’s shaped like Mickey Mouse, of course.

At 5 megwatts, it covers 22 acres, and is small, powering just several hotels and a resort. Disney is buying the electricity from Duke Energy, which owns the farm, built on Disney’s land.

Another project to lower emissions is converting Disney’s bus fleet to R50 – a mix of 50% vegetable oil biofuels with conventional diesel.

Disney’s goal is reduce emissions by 50% by 2020 from 2012 levels.
