Can a person buy into an industrial scale solar plant rather than get solar on their roof

I believe the cost per installed watt is about $3 for a rooftop solar setup, but only $1/watt for an industrial scale solar setup.

Are there options for people to just buy like 5000 watts of solar panels in an industrial scale setup, and then whatever energy those panels create are credited from their monthly electric bill? this seems more cost effective than residential solar. I’d rather buy 5000 watts of a 50MW industrial scale solar plant (preferably located in an area with more sunlight if possible) than spend 15k on a residential setup.

Is this an option, or becoming an option anywhere?
