    First Wind Turbine
    Charles F. Brush’s mansion was the first location of this very first wind turbine able to produce energy. This was the first self operating wind turbine. It was built their on his land with Brush's request.
  • Elctricity used in developing heavy weaponry

    Elctricity used in developing heavy weaponry
    In 1918, French inventor Louis Octave Fauchon-Villeplee invented an electric cannon which is an early form of railgun. filed in the US as a "Electric Apparatus for Propelling Projectiles". This will become a massive, and extremely expensive, piece of weaponry used in the US modern military. Louis' first designs were based upon trying to find a more energy effective weapon.
  • First Geothermal Use in the US

    First Geothermal Use in the US
    John D. Grant drills a well at The Geysers with the intention of generating electricity. This effort is unsuccessful, but one year later Grant meets with success across the valley at another site, and the United States' first geothermal power plant goes into operation.
