Comment Re:Tesla enables Edison to win the endgame? (Score 4, Insightful) 597

Everything I have read here makes me angry. First, there were technical reasons why Tesla wanted AC, and economic reasons why Edison wanted DC.

Second, HVDC lines exist. This is for BOTH technical and economic reasons.

Third, you can run AC and DC on the same lines and filter one from the other. With modern SiC tech this isn't even a challenge.
