Who Will Win Super Bowl XLIX: A Showdown In Energy Efficiency Between New England And Seattle
Who’s to say who will win Super Bowl XLIX this Sunday? When trying to predict the victor, should we consider the skills of the quarterbacks or the strength of the defense? Maybe it’ll all just depend on the weather in Phoenix, or the size of the footballs.
Here’s one interesting way to compare the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks: energy. And we don’t mean fan enthusiasm.
Opower, a software company that helps utilities improve customer experience, analyzed how the two teams’ home cities compare in terms of energy efficiency and innovation.
