Nikola Tesla sits before his large web coil in 1896. That year he wrote "I do not think there is any thrill than can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success.... Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything."

Another of Tesla's ideas to enable the production of cheaper power is based on the utilization of the temperature differences between that of the ocean surface water and that of water three miles below the surface. The basic idea is not in itself original with Dr. Tesla; he has, however, devised this interesting engineering scheme which makes the idea practicable. The above sketch shows how the icy waters from the ocean depths are brought in contact with the considerably warmer waters of the upper levels, creating steam power to operate great turbines, which, in turn, drive generators.

HYDROELECTRIC GENERATORS producing three-phase AC power were installed by Westinghouse engineers in Niagara Falls, N.Y., in 1896. Initially, they transmitted electricity only the 25 miles to Buffalo, N.Y., but within a few years, power lines to New York City set Broadway ablaze with light.
