RMS Energy Responds to the Changing Engineering Needs of Customers

Today’s electrical infrastructure in the United States might have been viewed as a work of science fiction when the first commercial power grid was conceived and built in New York’s lower Manhattan in the 1880s. But it didn’t take long for fiction to become fact. Thomas Edison’s brilliant and innovative design led to the propagation of more than 4,000 individual electric utilities by the early 1900s, paving the way for the immense transformation of how...
