 I'm not sure if they had the same reason but today,
DC is actually used for long range, high voltage lines
in a number of places. DC doesn't require the insulation
to hold off quite as much voltage. It doesn't suffer
from inductive losses.
 It isn't much good for home use. In fact, lamps don't
do as well on DC as AC because of the electrical effects
of the wire evaporating ( not sure which end goes first ).
