Before you tuck into your next Mars Bar (or Snickers or any other product from Uncle Ben's or the Mars Company, consider this... Mars is one of Australia's biggest manufacturers and uses just over 100 gigawatts of energy a year - enough for a small country!.
The good news is, however, that Mars say in Australia, they will be moving to entirely renewable energy in the next year as part of their plan to be globally carbon-neutral by 2040. To achieve this they have signed a 20-year power purchase deal that will support development of the Kiamal Solar Farm near Ouyen in northern Victoria, due for completion in mid-2019. See a more detailed article from the Sydney Morning Herald HERE. So feel good about tucking in but watch your waistline!.
