There are many different ways in which electricity can be generated, stored or used. Today in groups I would like you to research ONE of the following methods and make a summary sheet. Once you have completed it, add it to the comment section with your name.
The sources of power are: Coal, hydro, wind, solar, nuclear, bio fuel, diesel.
You must answer the following questions:
- Q1. Where does your source of energy come from?
- Q2.Is it renewable? How does it renew?
- Q3. Is it “reliable”? e.g. does it stay on all the time?, is it easy to fail?
- Q4. How big are the machines that make the electricity?
- Q5. Do you think it’s good for the planet? why/why not?
