    Members heard from Pam Messenger with Friends of Post Office Square about the alliance formed in 2016 between Friends of Post Office Square, MIT and Boston Medical Center (BMC)  to buy electricity from a large new solar power installation, adding carbon-free energy to the grid and demonstrating a partnership model for other organizations in climate-change mitigation efforts.  Their 25-year Power Purchase Agreement enabled the construction of Summit Farms, a roughly 650-acre, 60-megawatt solar farm in North Carolina, the largest renewable-energy project ever built in the U.S. through an alliance of diverse buyers.  Summit Farms has been operating for a year.
