List of utility company aliases
The various ways of looking up utility companies/rates are great, but what about utility company aliases? The OpenEI "Browse rates by utility name" includes aliases–is there some way to access this list?
Thanks Ryan, this looks like it's going to be a great system.
In case others are wondering, the query that Ryan wrote for "Category:Utility_Company_Aliases" was supposed to be "OpenBracket OpenBracket Category:Utility_Company_Aliases CloseBracket CloseBracket"--the brackets converted it into a link. See example here: http://semantic-mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Selecting_pages
Strangely, my query for "Category:Utility_Company_Aliases" returns no results, maybe because they are all redirect pages?
I think I'm starting to get the hang of this. This is the query that I ended up with: "http://en.openei.org/wiki/Special:Ask?title=Special%3AAsk&q=Category%3AEIA_Utility_Companies_and_Aliases&po=%3FName%0D%0A%3FEiaUtilityId%0D%0A&sort_num=&order_num=ASC&eq=yes&p[format]=broadtable&p[limit]=50"
Actually I just realized that that query doesn't return any of the aliases (e.g. "Xcel Energy of Colorado"), so that query isn't working for what I want to do.Submitted by Ewilson on 22 June, 2012 - 10:05
