Aluminum is an extremely conductive material. Electrical wire is commonly made of aluminum. Aluminum foil is just a big block of aluminum flattened into a long roll.

SO THE ANSWER IS ALUMINUM CAN CONDUCT ELECTRICITY!!!!!!!

In the US aluminum electrical wire is banned, because the surface oxide is nonconductive causing high resistance connections to develop resulting in electrical fires. Only copper electrical wire is legal, its surface oxide is conductive.
