Which solar systems should I consider?

We're building a new house and have a roof with plenty of space for number of solar panels, most likely photo-voltaic electric ones. But I'm hard-pressed to find a thorough *current* analysis discussing the pros and cons of various schemes for the systems.

Buy myself, lease, tax breaks, etc. Are there any online resources that really break it all down? Not just websites for the vendors themselves that focus on just their products. Or the various energy conservation nuts trying live off the grid. I can respect those viewpoints, but they don't usually tell the whole story.
I'm looking to make use of my roof area for creating power and I expect to feed that back into the grid during daylight hours. I'm not looking to store it locally. I do not need nor expect to have this take me off the grid. I'm just looking to make use of an otherwise wasted space on my roof to do something to offset energy consumption.
So where can I find some truly objective reviews of what's available today?
