Who here dreads blackouts? I do! Blackouts or power outages take away one of the most useful conveniences, ELECTRICITY! Electricity is a form of energy resulting from the existence of charged particles. It is a power source to many important household necessities such as air conditioning, lightbulbs, vacuums, electronic devices, dishwashers and much much more! Electricity has made many things possible and it continues to create miracles each and every day.
