Last month, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and NY Green Bank (NYGB) took a step to help improve access to clean energy sources like community solar for LMI New Yorkers by issuing a request for information (RFI) to gain a greater sense of market barriers and challenges facing stakeholders who specifically focus on the LMI sector in the state.  Through this request, the state will solicit feedback from solar developers, project sponsors, financial institutions, and community development financial institutions (CDFIs) like many of the Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) members.
