Electricity

Electricity is supplied throughout the entire nation by an alternating current (AC) at 110 volts. The sockets are of the American 2-prong standard. Always remember to unplug electronics during an electrical storm as most outlets offer very little surge protection. If you will be using a computer or multiple appliances, consider using a power strip with surge protection.
