It could have been almost free because we lose 90% in transmission today and there was no loss when it was transmitted throught the air.
Nikola Tesla invented AC!
Yes, Nikola Tesla discovered a way that energy could be free to everyone on the planet, using the natural atmospheric hemispheres in the sky. It is an idea for FREE energy, the energy does not have to be created, it’s already there. There might be costs involved in the technology of harnessing the energy or capturing the energy. These costs would be included in what we pay for things that are electrical because it would affect the way they work. The energy would also be wireless which would eliminate unsightly wires and dangerous downed power lines, and power outages. I do not know how or even if electrical storms would affect this free wireless energy.
With respect to Edison and Westinghouse, they were very highly intellegent, with many inventions and patents of their own. Edison and Westinghouse were superior marketers and businessmen. Nikola Tesla was not interested in marketing or business. His only interest in these areas was to make enough money to further finance his ideas. In fact, he was screwed financially several times and died ultimately penniless, while others became very wealthy using his ideas and patents.
It is a documented fact that Edison was very jealous of Tesla. Their relationship was strained to say the least. Edison spent an awful lot of time trying to discredit and eliminate knowledge of who Nikola Tesla was, and for a long time he succeded. Nikola Tesla was a genius who had a tendency to be eccentric. Tesla had some far out ideas particularly in his later years, although some of those ideas don’t seem so far out today and the public as well as our government is actually using them to the benefit of our society.
I suggest you do a google video search on Nikola Tesla, it’s really interesting! I wish more schools would teach about him and his life. Here’s a link that you might like to look at:
