Perhaps the oldest form of financing for commercial solar systems is, of course, ownership—that is, a situation where the business has the cash on hand to purchase the solar array outright.

The pros to owning your own system are fairly obvious. There are no ongoing cash outlays to third parties and everything about the system is yours, including the payback and the eventual (and proverbial) watching the meter turning backward.

Unfortunately, the cons of owning your own system are equally obvious. Not only can the upfront costs be steep, but what businesses looking to own systems often forget is what happens after the array is up.

Standard Solar, in its role as an owner/operator, sees as its mission to remove as much uncertainty as possible from the installation process for developers, EPCs, installers, municipalities, communities and other partners. That’s why, with $300 million in financial backing, we’re ready to take the owner/operator responsibilities off your plate.

So while there are advantages to owning your solar array outright, there are additional responsibilities and hassles that are also associated with such an arrangement. Though it is still an option, outright ownership is rarely used for commercial operations.
