Mars unveils new solar garden at chocolate factory

February 28th, 2012

LAS VEGAS – Mars Chocolate North America, maker of Ethel M Chocolates, has opened a new solar garden at its Ethel M chocolate factory in nearby Henderson, N.V.

The state-of-the-art solar installation, which features 2,112 ground-mounted solar panels on 4.4 acres, is the largest of any food manufacturer in Nevada.

The installation generates 1,258 megawatt hours of zero-emission electricity annually and provides 100% of the plant’s electrical energy during peak operating hours.

"We are proud of the investments we are making to ensure we are using the earth’s resources responsibly," said Mike Wittman, vice president of supply for Mars. "The newest solar garden moves us closer to our goals of eliminating our carbon footprint at our sites by 2040 and using 100% renewable energy."
