Buy or Lease

I am a professional data scientist working for a consulting company contracted by utility companies located across the USA. I work for a large multinational firm. My primary focus is environmental sustainable of our power grid from the prospective of economic feasibility for rate payer. I have made a living helping regular people pay their utility bills and to be clear I am paid by utility companies like CMP. I have a advanced degree in economics.

The question Mainer’s need to ask themselves is do they want to lease or own the power grid.

My example is: When you buy a car would you rather lease it and make a payment ever month for the rest of your life and own nothing or buy it and own something in 5 years? That is the question here.
