A few weeks ago, Disney completed work to make the desert landscape of Cars Land a little more “green.” One of the most popular and massive parts of Cars Land isn’t even visible from within the park, it’s the large show building that houses the Radiator Springs Racers attraction. And, of course, a big show building means a great big roof.
Taking advantage of the the real estate, Disney created a 40,000-square-foot solar array system atop the Cars Land attraction. Harnessing the the power of the sun, the panels generate enough for use in the park to power the equivalent of 100 Anaheim homes for a year!
The system features more than 1,400 high-efficiency solar panels, and is the first of its kind at the Disneyland Resort to help power an attraction. The solar panels are part of an ongoing commitment to develop and implement environmentally responsible practices at the Disneyland Resort.
