YIMBY is an acronym for Yes In My Back Yard in contrast and opposition to the NIMBY phenomenon.[1] Some of the groups encourage the installation of clean energy sources, such as wind turbines, despite the opposition these generally face from NIMBY groups. The term was coined by Nikolai Fedak of New York YIMBY, a news website that covers construction of new buildings and infrastructure in New York City.[2]
