LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — It's only fitting that solar panels that will help with the power needs of Walt Disney World are shaped like the famous ears of the mouse that started the Disney enterprise.
The facility is made up of 48,000 solar panels and is operated by Duke Energy.
Duke Energy will sell the energy to Disney's private government, Reedy Creek Improvement District.
The energy will be used to power hotels along Hotel Plaza Boulevard, as well as the Four Seasons Resort.
