Mars Inc. to Green U.S. Operations with Wind

May 2014 - In partnership with renewable energy developer Sumitomo Corporation of Americas, Mars, Incorporated, the global food and snack manufacturer, committed to purchasing 100% of its U.S. operations's electricity from a new 200-MW wind farm. The 118-turbine Mesquite Creek Wind farm was jointly developed by Sumitomo and BNB Renewable Energy and is based near Lamesa, Texas. With an annual output of over 800,000 MWh, the energy created from the wind farm will supply 70 sites, including 37 factories, and is the equivalent of 24% of Mars' total global factory and office carbon footprint.
