MENLO PARK, CALIFORNIA — Facebook is partnering up with Longroad Energy, a renewable energy developer, to build a massive solar farm in Texas.

Called The Prospero Solar project, the Associated Press reports, the farm will occupy 18 square kilometers.

According to Engadget, the solar farm will have a capacity of 379 megawatts.

This is part of Facebook's plan to use renewable energy to power its data centers.

Facebook's data centers are used to store images, videos and other user information.

Engadget reports that Facebook is already using renewable energy for 75 percent of its business, as of last year.

According to Facebook Sustainability, the company intends to become 100 percent energy efficient by 2020.
