Wikipedia Definition

Electric power is the rate, per unit time, at which electrical energy is transferred by an electric circuit. The SI unit of power is the watt, one joule per second. Electric power is usually produced by electric generators, but can also be supplied by sources such as electric batteries. It is usually supplied to businesses and homes (as domestic mains electricity) by the electric power industry through an electric power grid. Electric power can be delivered over long distances by transmission lines and used for applications such as motion, light or heat with high efficiency., Electric power is the rate, per unit time, at which electrical energy is transferred by an electric circuit.

It is usually supplied to businesses and homes (as domestic mains electricity) by the electric power industry through an electric power grid. To produce electric power, a power delivery system must be created or repaired. The power delivery system describes all the processes involved in making power available within buildings. More specifically, it involves the whole house or building wiring and supply of power. Within the power delivery system, there are various power delivery circuits. The power delivery circuit includes receptacles, power, and USB outlets within buildings for easy access to power supply.
