   Section  1. This act shall be known and may be cited as the "Community
 Solar for Disadvantaged Communities Act".
   § 2. The Legislature hereby finds that as  a  result  of  the  Climate
 Leadership  and  Community  Protection Act, New York State has two goals
 that are wholly compatible: the leading-edge goal to build six gigawatts
 of distributed solar generation by 2025,  and  to  provide  benefits  to
 disadvantaged  communities  through  the provision of low-cost renewable
 power; that recent estimates indicate New York State needs to accelerate
 the build out of solar deployment by at least six hundred  thirty  mega-
 watts  per year by 2025 to achieve the first goal; that New York City is
 the home to the four most underserved counties for solar  power  in  the
 state,  with seven percent of the solar generation yet forty-one percent
 of the population; that New York City is the home to the largest  number
 of  low and moderate income rate payers, including fifty-five percent of
 the state's low income residents; that New York city has a laudable goal
 of two hundred fifty megawatts of community solar to address  a  portion
