Back when Epcot first opened in 1982, the concept of using solar panels to produce electricity was still a new and expensive proposition. The Universe of Energy’s roof is filled with such panels which partially power the huge vehicles filled with guests through the attraction teaching when, where, how and what energy is.

Today, Tesla will soon be selling solar roofs which look no different then non-solar ones. “Now, that’s progress!”, to quote another famous Walt Disney created attraction.
Deb will be here tomorrow to share her Universe of Energy photo on our tour of Epcot’s Future World.
