There was electrical power in Moscow earlier:
*...At the end of March 1890, with Idaho statehood only weeks away,
electric light plants were in operation in these cities, with the number of
lights each of them could supply: Boise, 1,000; Moscow, 750; Wallace, 650;
Blackfoot, 500; Hailey, 500; Caldwell, 500... *
Edison built the first centralized power plant in 1880. It appears to have
been rapidly adopted.
