albertdock 2Electricity is an intrinsic part of our lives, and means light, power, versatility and convenience, in fact imagine a world without electrical energy. The Greek philosopher Thales of Miletus discovered static electricity [first called ‘electricity’ by English scientist William Gilbert in the 17th century], and this dynamic energy has fascinated us ever since. There are lots of awe inspiring facts about electricity and its power, such as a single bolt of lightening could light 100 powerful lamps for a whole day, or make a few hundred thousand slices of toast!

Man has harnessed and learnt all about the endless possibilities of electricity, and it is utilised and depended upon in just about every walk of life. Despite our reliance on electricity, it has surprisingly only been widely used domestically and commercially for around 100 years. The role of electricity is altering, as we discover innovative methods of generating renewable power. This involves the use of technology like air source heat pumps, solar cells and wind turbines, which use natural resources to produce electricity.

Along with our familiarity with and accessibility of electricity, we also of course need to treat it with respect, as we all know the dangers it can present. When having any electrical work done, it is crucial to find a reputable company to avoid any problems. It’s a good idea to check whether or not they are accredited or certified by industry bodies such as NICEIC, as this is often a good indicator of a professional, credible and reliable service.
