A whole new world is envisaged for Disneyworld Florida where Origis Energy is planning to install more than half a million solar panels to power the park and its surrounding businesses.
With circa 518,000 PV modules being installed in the area, Alice will really be in a solar wonderland now with the intention that 50MW-AC output of energy will be generated.
The project is to be completed by the end of this year and is expected to contribute towards the circle of life (ahem its life-cycle) creating around 300 jobs for the local economy. The park will secure a consistent (and cheaper) energy supply, with an associated revenue growth meaning…no worries for the rest of its days.
We have one word to describe this project and that is- Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! We have already been involved in a number of projects assisting commercial users in bring down their electricity costs and providing securing a fixed price for their electricity needs. Now enough Disney references so I will let it go (sorry!)
We are looking forward to seeing how this model can be rolled out this side of the Atlantic and we are always happy to discuss further with you!
To meet the needs of the Mickey Mouse-tourism complex, Origis plans to install 518,000 PV modules on single axis trackers on 270 acres in Orange County, Florida.
