Electricity starts its journey at the power plant, where it is brought into existence via fossil fuel or renewable resources ranging from coal and natural gas to hydroelectric and wind power. In most cases, these resources are used to power turbines via the force (s) of gas, steam, wind, water, solar, biomass, geothermal and even nuclear fission.

There are several ways electricity is made: Steam plants those burn fossil fuels, Hydroelectric Plants that use water and Nuclear Plants that split atoms. Each of these ways produces steam that turns a machine called a turbine. The turbine spins a giant magnet inside a coil of wire. Heat energy in the steam changes to mechanical energy.
