Well done video...but a couple of nit-picky factual errors:
1) Tesla did not invent the first hydroelectic power plant. Edison built one in the 1880s in Wisconsin. Other small stations had been built in England a little prior to and shortly after that. Those were all of the DC variety, though, and only capable of very short range, low wattage production.
2) Tesla's first AC hydroelectric power plant was built in Colorado. The success of this is what led Westinghouse and Tesla to the Niagara project.
3) The Niagara plant sent power to BUFFALO, not New York City.
Sorry...that's probably incredibly obnoxious of me.
That is awesome my man! Thanks for sharing!
