Lightning, Electricity and Energy

Lightning and Energy

Lightning is an electrostatic discharge accompanied by the emission of visible light and other forms of electromagnetic radiation.

Lightning can have 100 million to 1 billion volts, and contains billions of watts. Energy from lightning heats the air anywhere from 18,000 degrees Fahrenheit to up to 60,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The odds of a person being struck by lightning in their lifetime are about 1 in 13,000. Call Rogoz Electric at 623-363-5648 for all your residential and commercial electrical needs!
