NEW YORK–On Wednesday, May 19, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the Center for Impact Finance at the Carsey School of Public Policy at the University of New Hampshire will gather solar industry stakeholders, project developers, and members of the financial sector in a virtual discussion to identify how community financial institutions, such as credit unions, community banks and Community Development Financial Institutions, can finance solar installations in low-income communities and communities of color.
The plenary session, a culmination of previous working sessions, will identify capital needs across low-income solar finance; identify policy barriers to scaling low-income solar development across project types and business models; engage a broad group of stakeholders in solar development, community development finance, philanthropy, mainstream finance, and climate and energy policy to attract interest and support for efforts to scale low-income solar finance.
The event is open to the media and the public. All remarks will be on the record and the event will be recorded.
