In Escape from Alcatraz (1979), How did Frank Morris get electricity to drill the iron bars at the top of the prison?

I saw this movie two times, still didn't figure out how.

If you listen close at this point you are talking about in the movie Frank actually says there is an electrical outlet. This is around the 1:12 mark.

This is discussed in the film when they look at making the homemade drill.

Frank: "We'll spread the bars with a pipe and knock the hood off."

"There's an electrical outlet here. Get a motor, a drill bit and a flashlight and we'd have it all."

...

"Can you get me an extension cord and a drill bit from the shop?"
