Greetings from Colorado

In 1891, L.L. Nunn joined forces with Nikola Tesla and George Westinghouse and built the Ames Hydroelectric Generating Plant. Located near Telluride, the town in the center of the photo, Ames Hydro transmitted to the Gold King Mine 3.5 miles away. This was the first successful demonstration of long distance transmission of industrial-grade AC power.

119 years on, power is mostly transmitted AC. We are indebted to Tesla, Nunn, and Westinghouse for their innovation.

Cruising into the new decade, to all our friends, clients, and collaborators: a happy and healthy new year.
