Mars will be implementing a 200-megawatt wind farm with the help of Sumitomo Corporation. According to Mars, the 118-turbine wind farm will produce enough energy to make 13 billion Snickers candy bars. The farm is being developed on a 25,000 acre site in Borden and Dawson counties about eight miles from Lamesa, Texas.

Learn more about the wind farm and watch a video from Barry Parkin, Mars chief sustainability officer.
