Three Boston Area Organizations Jointly Buying Solar Energy
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston Medical Center and the Post Office Square Redevelopment Corp. are banding together to buy electricity from a solar farm that is yet to be built. The facility – the Summit Farms solar farm – will be constructed in North Carolina.
It will feature 255,000 solar panels, cover about 650 acres and will generate 60 MW of power. The press release says that it is the largest renewable energy project ever in the United States built through an alliance of diverse buyers. The project was designed, structured and negotiated by CustomerFirst and organized by A Better City, of which the three using organizations are members.
