Disney LED lighting saves 2 million kWh of electricity every year
Hong Kong Disneyland took the opportunity to spread the green message to guests and entertainers. Hong Kong Disneyland is committed to promoting environmental protection. This year, it focuses on the following four projects, including setting up the largest solar power generation system in Hong Kong, promoting energy conservation in the resort, and improving the separation of green waste.
During the epidemic, many families need to stay home to fight the epidemic, work or study from home, and students have to take their summer vacation early. The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort Goodwill Ambassador and the Horticulture Department have launched the Hong Kong Disneyland Green "Knowledge" Gardening. The guided tour allows all Disney fans and citizens to sit at home, enjoy the beautiful garden landscape in the park, and immerse themselves in different Disney story worlds.
The largest solar power system in Hong Kong
Hong Kong Disneyland started the installation of a large-scale solar power system in 2018, and completed the first three phases last year. It is now the largest solar power system in Hong Kong. The total power generation is expected to be as high as about 2.36 million kWh per year, which is equivalent to the total electricity consumption of 715 three-person households for one year.
Currently, more than 5,200 solar panels have been installed on the rooftops of 21 buildings in the resort, including recreational facilities and back-office buildings, with a total area that can cover 1.5 standard football fields. The building with the most solar panels installed in a single location is the rooftop of the amusement ride "Little World", with a total of about 1,200 solar panels installed.
After the completion of the first three phases, the park also plans to identify other suitable sites in the park, hoping to continue to develop the solar power generation system and increase the power generation capacity. The system has also been recognized by the government and the industry, and won the Model Award and Best Materials in the "2019 Model Solar Photovoltaic System Installation Election" organized by the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department. This award aims to encourage individuals to install solar photovoltaic systems and work together to develop renewable energy. The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department selects high-quality systems that have been installed for public reference.
At the same time, the resort also won the Outstanding Award in the "Renewable Energy Award" in the CLP "Innovative Energy Saving Enterprise Awards 2020", praising the resort for actively practicing energy conservation and environmental protection in its daily operations.
Save energy Improve energy efficiency
In addition to actively promoting renewable energy, Hong Kong Disneyland is also committed to energy conservation, including adopting environmentally friendly design in energy system design, and seeking ways to improve energy efficiency in existing operating methods.
Replace old lighting with LED lights
Hong Kong Disneyland replaced old lighting installations with LED lights, including daily lighting in logistics locations, and stage lighting in the park to save energy. At present, by introducing LED lighting, Hong Kong Disneyland will save 2 million kWh of electricity every year, which is equivalent to the total electricity consumption of 700 three-person households for one year.
