In the US there was practically no electricity anywhere except in the large cities until the 1930s under FDR.

Suburbs did not really become common in the US until the 1950s and they were immediately electrified as they were built.

Electricity began to reach suburban homes in the United States in the late 19th and early 20th century, as cities expanded and electric power distribution networks were established. The exact timing varied by region and availability of resources, but by the mid-20th century electricity had become a standard utility in most suburban areas.
