"Bez prądu" is also accepted.

what is the difference between these 2 words? I've been encountering prąd a lot, and elektryczność tylko tutaj.

Technically "prąd" means "current", especially "electrical current" (prąd elektryczny).

However... I think that in everyday language, "prąd" is waaaaaay more common than "elektryczność" and frankly, it would be a more useful word to teach. "elektryczność" sounds... more like a science term than a word used on a daily basis.

English also commonly uses "power" when we would use "prąd" (There's no power = Nie ma prądu).
