The highlighted comment was created in this revision.

I support this milestone, but suggest the following re-wording of the citation:

At this location on 28 August 1895, the Krka hydroelectric plant began generating power for the city of Šibenik. This early system of power generation, transmission and distribution was one of the first complete multiphase alternating current systems in the world. It provided electric street lighting before many other European cities, including London and Rome. It remained in operation until World War I.

The first change was prompted by a desire to remove the passive voice (was transmitted). The second change was prompted by trying to eliminate the vague "a large number of" and provide comparative context (how did Sibenik compare with other large European cities). I took the information from the National Park web link provided. Please have someone with detailed knowledge of this site verify accuracy of my changes.

    I full concur with the above comment, especially for the comparison with actual, well known cities. I support the proposal.
