AC has these advantages:
Easily available at a wall socket near you
Easily stepped up and down for long transmission with fairly low loss
Easy to generate with AC Generator/motor from rotary sources (e.g. turbines)
Easy to make powerful, reliable motors (induction type)
Frequency reference for clocks and other devices needing frequency reference
Easily rectified to DC if needed.
