With financial support from J.P. Morgan, Tesla designed and erected a unique electric magnifying tower known as Wardenclyffe on Long Island, New York as means to transmit free energy and communications without wires.
It was based on a successful smaller model that was built in Colorado Springs. The Wardenclyffe team tested their tower a handful of times during construction, and the results were very encouraging; however construction came to an abrupt halt in 1906 when J.P. Morgan withdrew his funding, when he discovered Tesla’s Plan of using the Wardenclyffe to supply free electrical energy.
“How can we get money from the electricity which Tesla is supplying to every part of the world?” — J.P. Morgan. Morgan purposefully scuttled any future ways Tesla could raise money.
