Welcome to the Tesla Memorial Society of New York Website


“GLOBAL ENERGY INDEPENDENCE DAY” proclaimed in Los Angeles on July 10, 2005 in honor of Nikola Tesla's Birthday by Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich





At the Board of Supervisors meeting on July 12, 2005, Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich presented a scroll to Dr. Edson Andre Johnson in recognition of “Global Energy Independence Day,” celebrated on July 10, 2005 -- the birth date of Nikola Tesla, the great Serbian-American inventor born in Croatia.


The purpose of the event is to promote alternative free energy including solar, wind, and geothermal, as well as technologies under development such as cold fusion, zero point energy, and Tesla radiant energy. 


With more than 270 patents awarded to him over the course of his lifetime, Tesla shaped the twentieth century with his invention of the radio, radar, x-ray, AC power, and the induction motor.  His legacy is now shaping the twenty-first century with the implementation of his methods of tapping and distributing free energy.
