Mother Nature Now Powers 'Cars Land' at Disney California Adventure Park

Radiator Springs Racers is generating some real heat, and this time, it has nothing to do with speed! Work has been completed on a new, 40,000-square-foot solar array system atop the Cars Land attraction, which uses the power of the sun to generate electricity for Disney California Adventure park — an amount equivalent to the energy used to power 100 Anaheim homes each 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.
