LEGOLAND Florida Becomes First U.S. Theme Park to Run Completely on Renewable Energy on Earth Day!

LEGOLAND Florida is “going green!” To mark the beginning of a groundbreaking partnership with Tampa Electric, LEGOLAND Florida became the first theme park in the US to run completely on renewable solar energy in celebration of Earth Day.

Earth Day with TECO (3)

As part of the partnership, LEGOLAND Florida will also permanently power a section of the park, Imagination Zone, on renewable energy. The celebration was part of existing and new conservation initiatives, including installations that will educate park guests about solar energy. A 30-kilowatt solar panel array has been mounted atop the Imagination Zone attraction venue and is funded by Tampa Electric, The system supports Tampa Electric’s Renewable Energy program that lets the company’s customers purchase a portion of their electricity from renewable sources.

Earth Day with TECO (1)

“This is a historic day for LEGOLAND Florida,” said LEGOLAND Florida General Manager Adrian Jones. “With our new partnership with Tampa Electric, we will give guests a whole new way to learn about renewable energy while also doing something that no other theme park in the U.S. has done before.”

Earth Day with TECO (5)

A celebratory moment was held just prior to park opening Tuesday, with both Jones and Bruce Narzissenfeld, vice president of Marketing, Customer Service, Business Development and Fuel Operations for Tampa Electric, proclaiming the partnership and special green initiative. Even the confetti was eco-friendly! The initiative will result in environmental savings equal to removing three cars from the road for one year or planting six acres of trees!

Earth Day with TECO (2)

“This is a partnership built on doing the right thing for the environment,” said Narzissenfeld. “Together, we’ll teach the next generation about the benefits of investing in renewable fuels like the sun to produce electricity.

As part of the partnership, a new display will be placed inside the park starting in June, featuring an interactive 6-foot LEGO ® Earth model that educates guests on solar technologies. Located outside Imagination Zone, visitors will be able to affect the rate of LEGO Earth’s rotation with tactile solar panels. Guests will also enjoy an interactive zone that features LEGO mini model communities running on renewable energy inside the Imagination Zone.

Pre-Earth Day2

The new areas add to the multiple educational aspects already within LEGOLAND Florida. The park gives kids a chance to learn and play with STEM-based activities such as LEGO MINDSTORMS robots, Build & Test and Power Towers.

Pre-Earth Day3

LEGOLAND Florida has made a consistent effort for conservation since the park opened in 2011, including:

  • The park recycled nearly 60 tons of bottles and cans in 2013, along with 176 tons of cardboard
  • Throughout the park, guests can find over 180 recycled-made benches, with each made out of 800 recycled milk jugs
  • Each of the park’s 310 trash cans (consisting of both waste and recycle only at a 1-to-1 rate) are made out of 330 recycled milk jugs
  • LEGOLAND Florida has map recycling stations to avoid the waste of park maps that guests can acquire at the beginning sections of the park
  • The LEGOLAND Water Park holds 26 benches and 88 trashcans made entirely out of      recyclable materials
