POSTING GUIDELINES

Please remember that this is a professional network. Posting to the network is governed by our Terms of Service. 

The Energy Central Power Industry Network has instituted an approval process for all content posted on the network.  When you post content, share a link, share a resource, ask or answer a question, your content will be managed through a review process.

We will review all submitted content within the next business day.  If your content is approved, you will be notified by email.  Please make sure you add service@energycentral.com to your safe sender list.

During this review process, we may also choose to pre-approve you. This pre-approval will allow you to bypass the content approval process for any content that you may post in the future.  If you are pre-approved, you will be notified by email.  This approval will stay intact as long as you follow our posting guidelines:

Guidelines:

  • Your content must be appropriate for professionals working in the electric power industry.  If it is targeted towards consumers it will not be approved.
  • Press releases for utilities may be posted or shared. Vendor press releases are considered promotional.  If you would like to promote a press release and you are a vendor you can contact our client services team for package options.
  • You may work for a vendor and have valuable insights to share with the community.  You will be allowed to do so if your content is not promotional.  You can mention your company’s name but you can’t promote a product or service. 

Highly commercial, promotional or advertising content will not be approved. 

If you want to reach Energy Central members with product and service information, please contact our client services team for options.  Or you may check out our on-line Media Kit

I have an idea regarding sharing post as well because i do share my make my assignment work blogs on various sites and the key is that the topic of the article should be what attracts the readers eye at first.
