As the saying goes for knife, ‘‘It is a good servant, but a bad master the same holds good for electricity. It can brighten our lives and at the same can char one’s future if not handled properly. Electricity is very useful for human beings right from the first day of its invention. Also, with the rapid growth of industrialization, there is a need to conserve the natural resources such as sunlight, wind or water and at the same time electrical energy due to the rising demand of the luxuries.
