The development of electrical systems in Croatia, at that time a part of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, started with first DC systems around 1880. The first AC power system in Croatia was set in operation on 28 August 1895, three days after the power plant on the Niagara Falls. The two generators (42 Hz, 550 kW each) and the transformers were produced and installed by the Hungarian company Ganz. The transmission line from the power plant to the City of Šibenik was 11.5 km long on wooden towers, and the municipal distribution grid 3000V/110 V included six transforming stations. The system supplied 340 street lights and some electrified houses in the town. Three years later after the first Jaruga power plant, the construction of the second Jaruga hydro plant began. Two three phase, 50 Hz, 5.5 MW generators were installed. A new transmission system was built and the local grid enlarged. After Jaruga I and II, additional power plants and transmission lines have been constructed.
