|Welcome to the California Energy Crisis Forum.|
After doing a stocktalk search for the text 'california energy crisis' I realized that it was a rather popular topic but was also fragmented or scattered across all kinds of threads and subjects.
So from here on I suggest we aggregate all kinds of posts, articles, links, market information, policy and political impacts that are directly relevant to the California Energy Crisis on this thread.
Readers who want a place to learn of new relevant newswire companies, links to credible articles or links that particularly relate to the north american weather, drilling and service activities, gas exploration & production, independant gas fired power producers, electric utilities will frequent here.
THREAD GROUND RULES: <b/>
1. Post your link or comments on an article you have read along with a brief comment as to how you see it relating to
better understanding an investment niche within the
CALIFORNIA ENERGY CRISIS.
2. References to a Newspaper or Magazine please specify author, date, page# to allow others to be able to locate the source if they want to read the entire segment.
3. Okay to post a company stock symbol as long as you also offer a prior explanation of where that firm fits in the bigger picture of serving the natural gas/power/util industries. (However the intent of the thread is to stitch together new sources of information to cross-check any posts or research that helps readers of this forum make intelligent investment decisions.
