A CLI for fetching public utility data from reporting agency servers.
This script will generate a datastore on a datastore directory. By default, the directory will end up in wherever you have designated “PUDL_IN” in the settings file $HOME/.pudl.yml. You can use this script to specific only specific datasets to download, only specific years or states but by default, it will grab everything. A populated datastore is required to use other PUDL tools, like the ETL script (pudl_etl) and all of the post-ETL processes.
Manage and update the PUDL datastore.
