Electricity is one of the most useful element in our lives. "Electricity” reminds us of anything that we plug into an electrical outlet in order to make it work, such as lights, refrigerators, video games, microwaves, and computers
People use electricity in many ways , To lit , warm , cool, dry , cook etc . It would be difficult to picture what life would be like without electricity.
Power plants make electricity by using coal, natural gas, uranium, water, or wind
Most power plants that burn fossil fuels. Smaller amounts of electric energy comes from nuclear and hydroelectric (water power) plants.
Very little is made from renewable sources of energy such as solar cells and windmills.
Electricity is generated at centralized power stations and then it travels a long distance through transmission lines that run across countries.
Houses, offices obtain electricity from smaller power lines . The current runs through a meter that adds up how much electricity we uses.
The electrical current moves through the wires in the wall of our house to all of the switches
Facts About Electricity and Energy
No waste of electricity means that we are using less of the earth’s non-renewable resources. Examples are oil, natural gas, uranium, and coal which are used to create electricity, once we use them up they are gone forever
Therefore, wasting electricity is not good for the environment
If we conserve electricity every single day, we can save lots and lots of money over time. We can spend this money on other things that we need and want
Learning to use less electricity and to use it wisely today, will be helping ourselves in the future.
