In case you haven’t been following our bracket, Genability put together a March Madness bracket based solely on the school’s Solar Avoided Cost figure. Using our Value of Solar tools, we calculated the Avoided Cost of Power for each school’s location and used that number to determine each matchup winner.
It was a bit of a long shot, but we had #15 Iona College of NY upsetting UCLA in the final game with an Avoided Cost of Power of 19.62 cents versus 15.58 cents. On the “bright” side, we did select one of the Elite 8 Winners. Thanks to Michigan with an Avoided Cost of Power of 13.48 cents, the Solar gods didn’t lead us totally astray.
You can see the status of our bracket below. Luckily we didn’t have any money on this!
