Changing the wavelength of the AC would require changing the frequency from 60 Hz to something else. The electric company can't do that without FCC approval, because they are a radio broadcaster. In any case, far too many things depend on the AC frequency to be 60 Hz in the US (or 50 Hz elsewhere). Changing the frequency would be even worse than droping the voltage for a lot of equipment.
