Inventor, Nikola Tesla was born at midnight on July 10th 1856 to a Serbian family in the Austrian Empire in a modern-day Croatia, and died a proud American citizen in 1943. Mr. Tesla was responsible for over 700 patents; his visionary innovations and ideas include:
– The rotating electromagnetic field dynamo (foundation for the alternating-current electrical grid now adopted around the world).
– Basic discoveries in radio, robotics and computer science (all of which have contributed immeasurably to our modern international society).
– Research of non-fuel-based solutions to the world’s energy needs (He spoke out against heedless use of fossil fuels over a century ago, thus providing an inspirational example to generations all over the world, who seek clean and effective solutions to the world’s energy crisis).
In light of Mr. Nikola Tesla’s visionary accomplishments – and our own commitment to implementing alternative means for the production and distribution of energy – we would like to support the idea to name the July 10th as Nikola Tesla Day.
