Being an electrician is an important job that many take for granted. If you think about your life today, it basically wouldn’t exist without an electrician. From the moment your alarm goes off, that is powered by electricity, to the moment you turn off the lights at night to go to bed, your world is powered by electricity. If you think about the goods and services you use every day, they wouldn’t exist either without electricity to power the machines to make these goods and provide you the services that make your life comfortable. Every time you cook food on your stove, open up a can of soda, hop on a bicycle to work, get in your car to go visit friends and family, and buy dog food for your best friend, you have an electrician to thank.

Known more for his work in physics and mathematics, including for his theory of relativity, what you might not know is that Einstein used to work as an electrician. One of his first jobs was to install cables for some of the first electrical lights in Germany for Oktoberfest. He, his uncle, and his father designed a steam generator in order to power these lights, which was one of the first of its kind ever invented.
We all know Ben Franklin’s story of flying a kite with a metal key and having it be struck by lightning (which Delta Electrical does not recommend that you try at home). At the time, the concept of electricity was far from people’s minds. However, people used elementary principles of electricity for magic shows to create sparks, which is what then sparked Ben Franklin’s penchant to learn all about it. He wondered if electricity and lightning were the same thing, since they both behaved in the same way. This led to his development of the lightning rod and grounding lightning before it did damage to the structure. Ben Franklin considered this his greatest invention.
Nikola Tesla developed alternating current (AC) transmission systems, which greatly improved upon the existing direct current (DC) systems. DC systems wasted vast amounts of energy through friction. Many cities, including New York City, converted over their power grids, which saved American huges amounts of money in electric bills. This allowed for more Americans to have electrical power than previously. Tesla worked with Thomas Edison, the inventor of the incandescent light bulb, for a spell, but the two had a falling out, mainly over Edison’s desire to use AC current to power America despite its limitations. Tesla went on to hold 111 patents, and he had the idea of drones and smartphones years before their time.
