About

Electricity is generated primarily by burning fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas, and oil, and to a lesser extent through nuclear fission, dams, solar power, etc. As power plants generate electricity, it is transported across long distance, hi-voltage transmission lines to numerous substations that convert it to lower voltage power for ultimate delivery to your home or business via local distribution lines.
