Last year,solaranalyst Cory Honeyman filled out a bracket to predict which states would install the most solar in 2015. Some of our readers wanted in on the action, so this year we decided to create our own March Madness competition.

This is your chance to prove your market forecasting chops. Download the bracket and fill in which states you think will install the most residential solar in the first quarter of 2015. Email it back to us at marchmadness@gtmresearch.com (or fax it to 617.941.4733). The winning entry will earn a free ticket to Grid Edge Live in San Diego on June 24 and 25.

We've provided a list of the 16 states that installed the most residential solar in 2014, based on our latest U.S. Solar Market Insight report, but feel free to include states that are not on our list.
