Production

 

Energy is typically delivered in the form of electricity. There are many methods for producing electricity, but the primary method involves electromagnetic induction-the process of transforming kinetic energy (motion) into electricity via turbine or generator.

Hydro Power
Natural Gas
Wind Power
Coal
 
Solar power acts as an alternative to the above methods, utilizing the photoelectric effect instead of electromagnetic induction.
 

 

Distribution

 

Electricity is distributed all over the country through three main power grids: the Eastern, Western, and Texas Interconnections. Within these grids are high voltage power stations, which use high voltage lines to transport electricity of up to 100,000 volts to lower voltage residential lines. These lines then use a transformer to lower the voltage to 100-200 volts.

Natural gas distribution occurs in a similar manner. Thousands of miles of interconnected pipelines run all over the country, with smaller residential lines tapping into the larger main lines.
