EIA query failing

Postby BT454 » Wed Jul 14, 2021 6:39 am

Hi all!
I'm attempting to pull in hourly wind generation energy from the EIA database, using the command
however, the fetch fails. I've attached a jpg of the error message for your reference.
EIA_FETCH_ERROR.jpg (14.23 KiB) Viewed 263 times

and here is the URL of the series on the EIA website: https://www.eia.gov/opendata/qb.php?cat ... .NG.WND.HL
Any help is appreciated in getting this series into my workfile.

We examined the data of the EBA.US48-ALL.NG.WND.HL and we saw that the series contains data from two different time zones.
In the next patch we will have a fix for EIA Edx to handle this case, but generally an EViews series (with hourly data) can contain data from one time zone.

Also you can retrieve the data with UTC time (instead of local time) by using this id instead : EBA.US48-ALL.NG.WND.H
fetch EBA.US48-ALL.NG.WND.H (UTC time)
fetch EBA.US48-ALL.NG.WND.HL (local time that currently fails in EViews)
