 Where Does Power Come From?

Where Does Power Come From?

Power Station

Power Station

Electricity is typically generated by steam or hydro-driven turbine at a power plant.

Step-Up Transformer

The power is then ramped up to high voltage for long-distance transmission.


Next, a series of high-voltage lines transmit the electricity through the power grid.

Step-Down Transformer

Power is then reduced to a lower voltage for use in homes and businesses.

Sub-transmission Customer

The electricity then passes through a series of switches to distribution lines.


Power is then delivered to customers via local lines! Finally, WE HAVE POWER!
