As details emerge a program to curb transportation emissions in the Northeast, advocates want disadvantaged communities involved in the process.
A state solar incentive program hasn’t done enough to spur development in disadvantaged communities, critics say.

A pair of bills would require solar panels on new buildings but include exemptions for shaded or nonviable properties.
A major climate bill that unanimously passed the state House last week would provide another $30 million for rebates.
