'Nuther Steampunk Question

Tried googling a hundred combinations of tesla coil and range, distance, arc, etc. All I can find is related to small coils.

How far could a really freaking huge coil conceivably arc? Say the power from a small city with a hydroelectric generator was entirely diverted to the coil. Like, the biggest tesla coil one could conceivably build. Is there a limit?

Because you can't put zepplins in a steampunk story and not fill them with hydrogen and blow them up with a giant tesla coil.
