Disneyland Paris has revealed that it will host a new 17 MW solar carport project, to be built in stages through 2023. The array is expected to generate 31 GWh of electricity per year upon completion, and will contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. France’s Urbasolar, a subsidiary of Switzerland-based Axpo, is developing the project, which will include 67,500 solar panels across a surface spanning 17 hectares. The facility will produce enough renewable energy to supply around 17% of the park’s current electricity consumption. Upon completion, part of the installation will light up at night in the shape of Mickey Mouse’s head, visible from above.
