If you are talking of house electric there would be No lights without Oil lamps, No hot baths without boiling water, No heat without fires, No air conditioning at all, ETC....

No heaters or electric heat, no forced air blowers for gas or oil furnaces or other forms of heating homes, street lights, televisions, electric clocks, neon signs, traffic lights, automated tollbooths. There would be no telephone or electrical poles, nothing would be digital. We wouldn't have much of our scientific equipment, no pumping or drilling equipment, one would only have ice in the winter because there would be no refrigeration, much of our office equipment (copiers, shredders, fax machines, scanners, computers, telephones) would be gone. Most of our medical equipment wouldn't exist. Man would only be able to work during daylight hours. Many of the things we take for granted today would never have been invented without electricity. Much of our production would still be done by hand because the factories that manufacture items wouldn't have assembly lines as they do today. Life would be very difficult!
