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, NYSERDA is revising the ICSA and not accepting applications. On August 3rd, we released the Proposed Round 2 Program Design [PDF] and the Explanation for the Program Rule Changes [PDF] documents. The Proposed Round 2 Program Design document contains the draft program rules for the next round of the ICSA and the Explanation for the Program Rule Changes document describes the reasoning for changes to Round 1 with specific questions for stakeholders. We are now reviewing the feedback that was collected through October 13th and using it to inform the Round 2 program design. If you have additional feedback or questions, please email [email protected].

NYSERDA hosted a webinar on August 8th 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.
