Benefits of AC

The primary benefit of alternating current, AC, is that it can be distributed over long distances with fewer losses as compared with direct current. Additionally, the wire sizes can be significantly reduced due to the reduced current load required to carry kiloamperes. Modern power plants and the towers that carry their power use a variety of voltages and sub-stations to route electricity to your home. As we mentioned before, electricity coming out of the typical wall sockets in your home is AC, measuring 110 V with a frequency of 60 Hz. This alternating current can directly power household appliances like toasters, irons, hair dryers and small electric hand tools.
