Quick Question about electricity as power source

Just, how do I power quarries with electricity without the electric engines? Quite new, been playing for 3 days straight now, got things nicely set up with nuklear factories. But I cant figure this one thing out. Id hate to depend on other energy sources as my electricity aint beeing used at all.

The Energy Link does quite nicely. You'll need roughly 64 EU/t to power the quarry to full speed. (Quarry takes up to 25 Buildcraft MJ's per tick; Energy Link converts IC2 EUs to Buildcraft MJs at about 2.5 EU -> 1 MJ, plus about 10% inefficiency I believe.)

Geothermal Generators are decent for this application, or you can plonk down a couple of MV Solar Arrays (once you're rich enough to afford them.)
