Oh, please.

You're referring to the popularized version of the Tesla story as shown by the history channel. Stay away from television. Go read all the books about Tesla first. Then go read what he was actually trying to do in both creating AC (the Morgan venture) and Universal Energy Distribution... read this from his actual writings. It's very clear and doesn't break the laws of physics unlike what so many people like to believe.

Short version: He wasn't trying to create energy from nothing. He wanted to give it away and he kept trying to avoid a monopoly by Morgan.
