Electricity has been called the great enabler of modern society.
From the alarm that wakes us up in the morning to the traffic lights that guide us to work and home again, electricity is central to our lives. So much so that we often forget it is there at all. We just know it will be there, literally, at the flick of a switch or the push of a button.
National Electricity Month 2017 will join the countdown to Canada 150 by looking at the role electricity played in building the Canada of today, and how we are helping build the Canada of tomorrow.
