In 2014 David Sandbank joined NYSERDA to run NY State's $1 billion NY-Sun initiative and has overseen the largest year-over-year growth of solar in New York State. In addition, Sandbank helped lead the design and launch of a Community Solar program to reduce the cost of solar in the State and enable access for all New Yorkers. Since Sandbank has taken the helm PV installed capacity has increased over 300% and costs have come down by 33%. Prior to joining NYSERDA, Sandbank worked as a solar developer, helping a start-up grow into a $30 million company. Sandbank helped build a staff of more than 100 and oversaw company operations, marketing, engineering and installation teams. In November 2013, Sandbank was elected vice president of the New York Solar Energy Industries Association to actively work with government agencies, policy makers and utility companies to help advance the solar industry in New York.
