Electricity and consumption

The consumption of electricity in Denmark has grown steadily since the establishment of the first power plant in 1891. At first electricity was used for light, but soon workshops and industries realised the advantage of electricity for pulling their machines. In the 1920’es electricity also became a service of the house wife, first for ironing and cleaning, later for cooking. In the 1950’es teenage life went all electric with transistor radios and electric guitars.
