How is electricity made?
Electricity is used in homes and businesses up and down the country and without it, we would struggle to survive. Our societies have been built around the ability of us being able to harness the power in one form or another to affect the environments around us, to allow us to work and being productive and to keep us safe and healthy.
As the years have progressed it has become more and more important for us to monitor our usage by taking a look in the Electric Meter box on the side of our homes and recording this with our energy suppliers. By taking a reading from the meterbox electric meter box you are able to ensure that you are only paying for the energy that you are using rather than paying for an estimated amount.
Electricity is a secondary energy source that we use by harnessing the power of primary sources. Most of the electricity that we generate comes from power generators that heat coal or gas where the heat created then turns turbines that then produces electricity that is then channelled through a transmitted and onto the pylons that we see across the country.
This energy is then transmitted through the overhead power lines that we have and underground cabling. The electricity is then taken to substations where it is distributed through cables to homes and businesses in the area. From here the power enters the home and is linked to the witches throughout the building.
