As far as I know, most actual computer guys don't need to know much more about electricity beyond "don't stick a fork in the outlet."

An aside, because this is as good a place as any to rant:

The computer expert at my office is the computer expert because his late father was a past administrator.

He has a degree in journalism, with a concentration in photojournalism. He did finally go back to school for a couple of classes that had something to do with computers. When I was working as a secretary I helped him with his BASIC homework. For real. He 'maintained' a dBaseIII database for years, but can't write in dBaseIII. I solved a serious problem related to the medical records system with an offhand comment. He to this day does not own a home computer. There is something wrong with that.
