Just wondering if anyone knows if Disney does anything substantial environmentally at the resort.
I know they have a massive trash sorting facility that reduces landfill (which saves them a lot of money). They also have a lot of bottle/can recycling bins.
I know they are also test bed for a number of transportation technology as well.
But beyond that anything large?
Why am I asking this? Well they are a large consumer of power (it was reported they consume 10% of a nuclear power plant and that is just a fraction of what the resort uses) and then tell use visitors to be more earth friendly.
They seem to have a lot of roof space for solar cell and solar water heaters. They could with solar water heaters (in sunny Florida) reduce dramatically the energy used to heating resort water (tap and/or pool). Or how about cover some of the roofs in parks with PV. Those attraction roofs are hugh! I am sure that imagineering could spare a few people to work on this.
I know they can’t provide base load but they could lower their drag on the power use in the region by providing fill power during peak usage. This would also help lower their energy cost.
Anyone know of anything Disney might be doing?
