Milestones:First 735 kV AC Transmission System, 1965 accessdate 2010-09-02 In 1972, Manitoba Hydro connected generating stations part of the Nelson River Hydroelectric Project to the Winnipeg area through a high voltage direct current power line, the Nelson River Bipole. and was historically known as '''Saint-Henri-de-Lauzon'''. The narrowing of the Saint Lawrence River (w:Saint Lawrence River) proximate to the city's promontory, Cap-Diamant (Cape Diamond), and Lévis (w:Lévis, Quebec), on the opposite bank, provided the name given to the city, ''Kébec'', an Algonquin (w:Algonquin language) word meaning "where the river narrows". Founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain (w:Samuel de Champlain), Quebec City is one of the oldest cities (w:List of North American cities by year of foundation) in North America.
electric power three-phase system of alternating current power transmission for distant transfer of electricity. This allowed designers to light the Exposition in Buffalo using power generated '''New York State Route 182''' ('''NY 182''') is a state highway in Niagara County, New York, in the United States. It serves as a signed connection between the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge over the Niagara River and the Niagara Falls International Airport east of the city of Niagara Falls (Niagara Falls, New York). The western terminus of the route is at the roadway leading to the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge in Niagara Falls and its eastern terminus is at an intersection with U.S. Route 62 (U.S. Route 62 in New York) (US 62) in Wheatfield (Wheatfield, New York). In between, NY 182 runs across the city of Niagara Falls, following several local streets as it makes its way from the Niagara River gorge to the suburbs of Niagara Falls.
to the rest of the lighting system. While airports commonly use 6.6A direct current power, heliport lighting is normally AC powered. Radio control of the lighting by the pilot via an automated ground-based controller (Pilot Controlled Lighting) is also common. stat2-data 269 footnotes Source: Federal Aviation Administration , effective 2007-03-15 File:EFD - FAA airport
warnings about the electricity supply. New York City's electric utility company, Consolidated Edison, continued to supply direct current to customers who had adopted it early in the twentieth century, mainly for elevators. The New Yorker Hotel, constructed in 1929, had a large direct-current power plant and did not convert fully to alternating-current service until well into the 1960s. Tom Blalock, '' Powering the New Yorker: A Hotel's Unique Direct Current System'', in ''IEEE Power and Energy Magazine'', Jan Feb 2006 This was the building in which AC pioneer Nikola Tesla spent his last years, and where he died in 1943. In January 1998, Consolidated Edison started to eliminate DC service. At that time there were 4,600 DC customers. By 2006, there were only 60 customers using DC service, and on November 14, 2007, the last direct-current distribution by Con Edison was shut down. Customers still using DC were provided with on-site AC to DC rectifiers.

in 1871 during the unification of Germany. Town works Schüttorf has at its disposal its own ''Stadtwerke Schüttorf GmbH'' – the town works – which is publicly owned. Already in 1896, a direct-current (Direct current) power station had been established on Fabrikstraße. From 1897, Schüttorf had electric street lighting, thus becoming one of the first towns in the German Empire to have it. In the same year, the lighting on Unter den Linden in Berlin was electrified
and his cottage, on the site of the current power station, was called Wylfa. * 2 October 1934, G-ACPM of Hillman's Airways crashed into the sea (1934 Hillman's Airways de Havilland Dragon Rapide crash) off Folkstone, Kent causing the death of the pilot and the six passengers. * 26 January 1935, G-ACPO of Hillman's Airways, operating a mail flight from Aldergrove Airport, Belfast to Stapleford Aerodrome, Abridge, Essex via Speke Airport, Liverpool, Lancashire crashed at Derbyhaven, Isle of Man, whilst attempting to divert to Ronaldsway Airport during bad weather.

in Philadelphia on May 30, 1902 to a distance of a half mile. Tests in New York City in June 1902 were less successful because of electrical interference from alternating current power in widespread use there. His experiments were discussed in leading scientific journals.
