Duke Energy to build 5 megawatt solar facility near Epcot

Posted Thursday, May 28, 2015 10:38 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Duke Energy will build a facility near Epcot that will provide 5 megawatts of solar power to Walt Disney World. RCID voted Wednesday to accept a 15-year agreement with Duke. The energy company will lease the land from Disney, which will buy power. The solar farm will occupy about 20 acres near World Drive and Epcot Center Drive.

Notice how all the guys here get along in said masterbatory threads? I'm sure there's something Freudian there, but I'm not sure what.

It's only masturbatory if tighty whitey twister is involved. Or the balls touch.

That's because someone stopped piping the artificial pancake smell into the forum that always makes everyone crave pancakes.

All these parks are getting awesome new rides and all Epcot has to justify its price increase is a lousy solar farm.
