Burlington Electric Department shared Spectrum Youth and Family Services's post.
Read the heartfelt reason why John St. Amour of our Finance Department is participating in Spectrum Youth and Family Services Sleep Out 2017 as a member of the City of Burlington team. To learn more about John and our team and why we are sleeping out in solidarity with homeless youth, or to make a donation, visit: http://bit.ly/2kZxYE8.
Why is John St. Amour sleeping out with Burlington Electric Department? "Believe me when I tell you this," he says. "I am sleeping out for this simple reason: the kids on the street need our support and they need our voices."
My kids did not understand why Daddy was going to sleep outside on the ground, instead of a warm bed. I explained to them that many people locally do not have the comforts we do, and it was time to give back.

Just a reminder: Burlington Electric will be closed tomorrow for Presidents' Day. We will reopen on Tuesday, Feb. 21st, during our normal business hours.

The final electron lover of our Valentine's Day series doesn't need an introduction because his name is synonymous with innovation . Before Elon Musk and Tesla, Inc., there was the original: Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), the futurist, inventor, the electrical and mechanical engineer, and physicist. There was also an 80’s band called Tesla, but that’s neither here nor there. Legend has it the Nikola Tesla was born during a lighting storm in the village of Smiljan, Austrian Empire (modern-day Croatia) in 1856. And this seems like a fitting beginning for a man best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system. In addition to his AC system and coil contributions, Tesla discovered, designed and developed ideas for a number of other important inventions—including dynamos (electrical generators similar to batteries) and the induction motor. He was also a pioneer in the discovery of radar technology, X-ray technology, remote control and the rotating magnetic field—the basis of most AC machinery. His 1891 invention, the "Tesla coil," is still used in radio technology today. Tesla died in New York City on January 7, 1943. In 2013, a statue of Nikola Tesla was donated to the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe of Shoreham, NY, by the Republic of Serbia to honor the scientist.

Our next scientist loved electrons so much that he found them to be irresistible. Actually, he's kind of famous for it. Georg Ohm (1789-1854) was a German physicist, best known for his “Ohm’s Law”, which implied that the current flow through a conductor is directly proportional to the potential difference (voltage) and inversely proportional to the resistance. Ohm's law first appeared in the famous book Die Galvanische Kette, Mathematisch Bearbeitet (The Galvanic Circuit Investigated Mathematically) (1827) in which he gave his complete theory of electricity. In addition to his law, he showed for the first time how to relate electrical resistance R, current intensity I, and electromotive force E in an exact mathematical way, thus placing the matter on a sure scientific foundation. This lover of electrons’ contribution was so monumental his name has been immortalized as the physical unit of electrical resistance, the Ohm.

Lewis Latimer’s (1848-1928) love for electrons could light up a room! And yes, we mean that literally. Born in Chelsea, Massachusetts to runaway slaves who fled from Virginia, Latimer is considered one of the most important inventors of all time, not only for his numerous inventions and patents but also for the magnitude of his most famous discovery. Latimer discovered a way of encasing the filament which prevented the carbon from breaking in the original light bulb design. This provided a much longer life to the bulb, and made bulbs less expensive and more efficient. Because of his discovery, electric lighting could be installed in homes and on streets. In 1881, he received a patent for the “Process of Manufacturing Carbons” an improved method for the production of carbon filaments used in lightbulbs. Additionally, Latimer is also known for working with Alexander Graham Bell on a little invention called… the telephone. #innovation #publicpower #electricity #light #engineers #blackhistory #valentines
