I always drive by the WDW solar field(s) on 429 when going on property, but haven't really noticed any energy storage containers (i.e. batteries). It seems to me that WDW building this new 75MW (likely peak power) solar facility should incorporate energy storage (peak shavings, flattening the duck curve and ancillary back-up generation).
Also, FPL (Florida Power and Light) is in the process of building the largest solar/battery farm in the world and....
"Florida Power and Light (FPL) will soon house the world’s biggest battery system, capable of powering Disney World for approximately seven hours."
And while I'm on my stand, I would really like to see WDW adopt DLP's parking lot canopy approach using solar panels.
@OKW Lover - have you noticed any large containers near/on this solar field on 429?
