Open Solicitations

Apply for financing from NY Green Bank

NY Green Bank provides financial products to support projects, businesses, and investors working to accelerate our State's clean energy transition. As a Division of NYSERDA and a public entity, we publicly issue requests for proposals (RFPs) in order to solicit investment opportunities with qualified parties.

NY Green Bank’s primary investment proposal solicitation is RFP 1: Clean Energy Financing Arrangements (see all documents for RFP 1). RFP 1 is an ongoing solicitation that is open to proposers from a range of clean energy projects and businesses.

In addition, we offer more targeted opportunities designed to be more streamlined and product and/or market-barrier focused, and are all informed by NY Green Bank’s ongoing interactions with private sector lenders, investors and project developers.

Occasionally, NY Green Bank also procures qualified service providers for a variety of tasks. These solicitations will also be listed on this page.

As some NY Green Bank opportunities are now closed and others are ongoing, the solicitations below will not be in sequential order.

The list below contains information on all current RFPs, including details on how to submit your proposal.
