The US electrical grid has come a long way in the last 140 years, since names like Edison, Tesla, and Westinghouse lit up our cities. No one could have predicted how electricity would shape our industries and how intracule it would be to our everyday. Thanks to good ole Teddy Roosevelt, electrical power was spread throughout the US with the Rural Electrification Act, that made electricity available to all. A quote that simply states “Mysterious affair, electricity” by Sam Beckett really sums up how most of us relate to this phenomenon of moving electrons and ions. Electricity is a humbling, silent workhorse. To understand the complexity of it can take a lifetime. My personal eureka moment was when I first learned the water hose analogy for explaining electricity, which if you are not privy to, I recommend Googling that one.
