by Allison Mond

2017 is the first calendar year since 2011 in which more residential solar systems have been purchased with cash and loans than with leases and PPAs. This is due to three key factors: a widespread availability of loan products, a shortage of third-party-ownership (TPO) suppliers, and SolarCity’s deliberate move away from TPO.
