Knowledge is as powerful as electricity. Electricity always seeks the shortest path to the ground and looks for a good conductor, such as metal, that transmits it easily. The human body is also a good conductor because it is about 70% water. If you touch anything with a live current, a bare wire or faulty connection, electricity will pass through you to the ground. Depending on the strength of the current, the electricity could seriously injure or fatally shock you.
TCEC is more than your source of energy. We are also a valuable energy resource. That is why we provide our members with information that is as reliable and useful as the electricity we supply. Information ranges from safety tips to education to the latest efficiency information.
Statistics from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission show that nearly 400 people are electrocuted in the United States each year.
