Hi all,
I'm an amateur in the PeakOil field and used to read the The Oil Drum site a few years' back. My specialty is the Electricity field (Substations to be precise) and have always been curious about Energy markets, natural monopoly's, utilities, regulations, etc.

I hope to learn a lot and thanks for letting me in!

Hi d_l
Welcome!
I'm in Sonora currently, so sorta neighbors.

Perhaps this noob will not be a socialist, although being from California its likely he is.

Soon enough this noob will know who speak rationally and who doesn't. Put down the bong man.

With your background, I would expect that you will have lots to contribute to certain threads. Electricity come up quite a bit for some reason... :)

In my county in Virginia, they have been upgrading all of our substations and tying them together with 230kV lines to be able to shunt power as needed and laying new/upgraded ductbanks and lines everywhere it seems. Seems like a good idea - is that happening everywhere?
