Inclusive Community Solar Adder


The Inclusive Community Solar Adder (ICSA) supports CDG solar projects serving low-to-moderate income (LMI) subscribers, affordable housing, and other facilities serving disadvantaged communities (DACs). The goal of the ICSA is to increase access to community solar and resulting electric bill savings for LMI households and to reduce operating costs for affordable housing and nonprofit entities serving DACs.

At this time, we are revising the ICSA and not accepting applications. We recently released the Draft Program Rules for Round 2 of the ICSA. If you would like to provide feedback on those draft rules, please see the information below.

Round 2 Stakeholder Feedback Process

Prior to the launch of Round 2, NYSERDA is collecting feedback on the Round 2 Draft Program Rules. If you would like to provide feedback, please review the Proposed Round 2 Program Design [PDF] and Explanation for the Program Rule Changes [PDF] documents and send feedback to [email protected] with the subject line “ICSA Round 2 Feedback: Organization Name” by Thursday, October 13, 2022 at 3:00pm Eastern Time. Please see the first page of the “Proposed Round 2 Program Design” document for more information.

For stakeholders who would prefer to provide their feedback verbally, NYSERDA will be available between August 9th and 18th and then again between September 8th and 30th to take feedback over the phone. Email Dylan Cunningham ([email protected]) at least 72 hours in advance to schedule a 30-minute call.

NYSERDA hosted a webinar on August 8 to review the proposed modifications to the ICSA and provide details on how stakeholders may submit feedback. A recording of the webinar and presentation slides are available on NY-Sun’s Resources for Contractors page in the “Stakeholder Meeting Updates” section.
