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:

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. Also
include original URL so readers can verify posted info for themselves.

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.

...Calif. energy woes zap tech sector......Energy Problems in CA could endanger all of us...thought some of you would want to see this article...especially since so many of us are heavily invested in tech....

POSSIBLE LONG TERM SOLUTIONS :
Eg....new power plants, reduce energy demand, other energy sources...

CALIFORNIA DEREGULATION DISCUSSIONS:
Eg....Blame California's energy crisis on botched deregulation...there may not yet be a worldwide energy crisis, but there certainly is a Californian energy crisis and it is largely the result of misguided decisions...

GENERATING CAPACITY DISCUSSIONS
Eg...California has added very little generating capacity in the past decade. At the same time, demand in California surged as the state's economy recovered from a recession and technology growth in Silicon Vallley..

ALTERNATIVE ENERGY DISCUSSIONS
Eg....Fuel Cells...seem to have awakened form their slumber this week due to the California crisis...

...Fuel Cell Technology Alternative energy and fuel cell technology is receiving more attention on Wall Street, so we thought our readers might like a briefing on the topic. With the energy crisis in California...
