Creating a Sustainable Future
Commissioned on October 1, 2015, the power produced by the Mesquite Creek Wind Farm will offset 100% of MARS, Inc.’s North American Operations, including 70 US sites and 25,000 employees. Spanning over 25,000 acres and featuring 118 of GE’s 1.7-100 wind turbines, Mesquite Creek will produce energy equivalent to:
• Powering 61,000 average US households
• Making 13 billion SNICKERS® bars
• Making 125 million forty pound bags of PEDIGREE®
• Making 188 billion sticks of ORBIT® gum
MARS took this step as a part of their goal to achieve carbon neutral operations by 2040. Learn more about the Mesquite Creek Wind Farm and their Sustainable in a Generation goal on the MARS website.
