    electric power/electrical power/electric energy/electrical energy

    electric power/electrical power
    electric energy/electrical energy
    -Which is correct? What’s the difference between electric and electrical? As I know, it should be electric power, but the example of Oxford given is electrical power.

    Re: electric power/electrical power/electric energy/electrical energy

    I would use "electric". The other would not be wrong.

    I would use "electrical".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
