electricity

May 2, 2010

Where does electricity come from? 

In the USA, about 50% of it comes from coal-fired power plants.  We got a tour of one on Sunday, which is mind-bogglingly complex.  In any case, it was a great field trip opportunity and ties in with what we learned in Illinois about coal mining.  I’m sure we’ll learn more about it in West Virginia!
