Disneyland Paris has released a video highlighting their solar parking lot project currently in development with French company Urbasolar.

What’s Happening:

  • Disneyland Paris announced back in July that they were constructing a solar power planet above the Guest parking lot that also provides shade for cars.
  • The project is expected to be completed in 2023 and is being co-invested by Urbasolar, a French power company.
  • In a new video, Disneyland Paris has shared more details about the elevated power planet, which will be one of the largest solar plants in Europe.
  • The solar parking lot cover will be the size of twenty-four football fields.
  • There will be 67,500 solar canopies that will cover 9,600 parking spaces.
  • When finished, 17% of Disneyland Paris’ annual electricity consumption will come from solar power, cutting local CO2 emissions by 750 tons per year.
  • The top of the solar panels will also feature an illuminated giant Mickey silhouette visible from the sky.
