If ownership of the system is your primary goal, but you would rather someone else foot the bill, getting a solar loan might work for you. With solar loans, your solar installer will cover the cost of the system. You claim any tax credits or incentives available and pay off the loan amount over a fixed period. There is a ton of ways to structure these loans.
Financing the system works very well in areas that have incentive programs focused on ownership, or if you are planning on moving within a short time. This allows you to get the most value out of the solar system when you sell your property. Like ownership, you are responsible for the system.
