Using Value of Solar to Pick the NCAA Winner

Never before has a 15 seed won the NCAA tournament but if you trust the solar gods (and we do), this year is the year!

Some people fill out their March Madness brackets based on mascots, others use team colors.  At Genability, we’ve picked each game based on the highest Solar Avoided Cost, or the amount of energy that you avoid buying from the electric utility because it’s provided by your solar system.  Using our Value of Solar tools, including Likely Tariff and baseline profiles, we’ve calculated the Avoided Cost of Power for each school and used that figure in determining the winners.  You can see our full bracket below.

If we leave it to the powers of solar, this year’s NCAA champion will be 15 seed Iona College of New Rochelle, New York with an Avoided Cost of Power of 19.62 cents.  It was a nail bitter with Iona upsetting UCLA in the final game at 19.62 cents versus 15.58 cents.

Stay tuned and we’ll let you know how our solar bracket matches up.
