We have to remember the original purpose of electricity was to provide illumination after dark. In other words, to replace candles and other forms of illumination. So charging by the number of bulbs might have made sense, at least in 1890. I'm writing this about 11:15 in the morning on a bright sunny day. Now how many "bulbs" do a desktop computer, a modern LED based flat panel monitor, and the gadgets to talk to the internet represent?
