“Floridians generally don’t get to choose which power provider they use to run their homes.”
??? Duh! Who does? But, this is more B.S.
“Duke Energy owns and operates the array, and sells the power it generates to the resort” More liberal BS! aka FAKE.
Now, read the real story — ALL of it…

“Duke’s deal isn’t directly with Walt Disney DIS +0.56% but with the Reedy Creek Improvement District, which manages utilities for four theme parks and 40,000 hotel rooms in the area. Reedy Creek has agreed to buy the power from Duke under a 15-year agreement.
“And the project will generate only a mouse-sized portion of the power used by Disney’s parks. Even in sunny Florida, photovoltaic panels have a capacity factor of about 24% — that is, over the average 24-hour period there will be less than 6 hours when the installation is churning out its maximum 5 megawatts of power.” https://www.forbes.com/sites/christopherhelman/2016/02/29/disney-world-taps-solar-power-with-mickey-mouse-pv-project/#12099d896b7d
“The new legislation said that landowners within the Reedy Creek Improvement District, primarily Walt Disney World, would be solely responsible for paying the cost of providing typical municipal services like power, water, roads, fire protection etc.
“Local taxpayers, meaning residents of Orange and Osceola County, would not have to pay for building or maintaining those services.
“The cooperation and commitment between the Reedy Creek Improvement District and Walt Disney World Company is as strong today as it was when the District was created in 1967. The result is an example of how a working partnership between business and government can be prosperous for both sides.” https://www.rcid.org/about/
