    Do you mean "if there was no electricity"?

    (2) First, there would be no modern electric appliances such as TVs, radios, computers, telephones, air conditioners, refrigerators, and so on.
    (3) That would cause a chain reaction: we would have no night markets, 7-Elevens, movie theaters, Internet cafes, etc.

    Keep tenses consistent.

    Also, as an aside, daily life was not chaos before electricity was invented.
