Community Solar Sponsor Resources

In September 2019, the NYS Department of Public Service (DPS) and NYSERDA launched the Community Solar (CDG) Crediting and Working Group in order to identify potential roadblocks and issues CDG projects may face. This group is a collaborative effort and includes CDG Developers, Sponsors, and a member from each of the Utilities (not NYPA or PSEG).

The below documents have been created by the working group in order to provide guidance for Sponsors and Utilities. These documents will also be posted on each of the Utilities websites as well.

Inclusive Community Solar Adder Resources

The Inclusive Community Solar Adder (ICSA) is an incentive available for community solar projects serving low-to-moderate income (LMI) households, regulated affordable housing, and nonprofits serving disadvantaged and environmental justice communities. The goal of the ICSA is to bring the benefits of community solar to underserved New Yorkers, helping them save money on their electric bills, and reducing operating costs for affordable housing and nonprofits serving disadvantaged communities (DACs).
