Nearly everyone is familiar with the word ENERGY, yet few people know what it really is. Energy, simply put, is the rate at which work is done. Work is the effort to produce or accomplish something.

The Power of Electricity Member's Manual is under Revision and a new pdf will be out soon.

Because energy is so important today we are going to leave this pdf online until the new comes online.

The entire pdf version of this is available for download at
