As the installed price of solar PV installations in the US has decreased dramatically in recent years, many commercial and industrial property owners and tenants are considering the deployment of solar generation systems on their properties.

A key consideration for potential Hosts in deploying solar is the ownership and structure: who should own it and who will use the solar generated electricity? Financing of the solar system is an interrelated consideration that is equally critical.

Our new report focuses on how these considerations should factor into the planning of solar PV deployment for Hosts, by discussing four basic ownership structures:

  • Direct Ownership Via Cash Purchase
  • Financed Via Debt
  • Financed Via Operating Lease
  • Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) With Third party Ownership (system hosted on the property)
