God this sounds like a horrible way to develop electricity. First of all, it's nearly impossible to harness and use electricity without any metal. You can conduct electricity with carbon or silicon, but generating it would be honestly near impossible on any meaningful scale.
If you use a loophole like salts to abuse sodium and lithium, you may be able to at least produce something, though it's definitely going to be very difficult. Maybe you can use bone powder as calcium and lithium salt along with silicon to make a makeshift battery, though I'm basically guessing at this point. Turns out metals are so good at doing what they do that we don't typically mess around with trying nonmetals.
If you can somehow get your battery working you can make an electromagnet, and now you're capable of making a generator. Only instead of having the electrons provided by metal, you have something idiotic like salt water filled pipes that you have to try and generate an electrical current with. Maybe silicon or carbon would work better than salt water, but again, so little research that I can find that I straight up can't tell you for sure.
Anyways the point being is it isn't disproven yet, but the components are all so vastly inferior and hard to identify that a society with no free metal at all would most certainly never develop it. They would be hard pressed to even develop something like a steam engine, given how metal is our go too material for making it. maybe someone could do it with shale plates and wood tubes and rubber stoppers, but it's not going to be very efficient and will take a long time to harness efficiently, if it ever happens.
