Solar Panels

Does anyone know who will make the decision and if it will ever be made 
...concerning the the deployment of the solar panels?? I know there are 
unknowns,,as in everything,,, damage to spacecraft...and so forth...but these 
bad pointing angles  are discouraging...Do I understand that an advantage of 
3 axis stabilization...with solar panels deployed would mean satellite always 
pointing at earth???   Can someone elaberate on the possible negatives and 
positives of deploying the solar panels...?/
