Where our Electricity Comes From

26 April 2013

One reason why electricity is so cool is that it comes from many different sources that all make electricity. To create electricity we gather it from different sources and process them to make electricity. In Minnesota we get our electricity from:

Each source of electricity has different impacts on the earth. In Minnesota we get most of our electricity from burning coal. Burning coal is unhealthy for the earth and humans because it makes smoke that puts pollutants into the air. Sun, water and wind don’t hurt the earth as much because they don’t release bad pollutants like coal does.

To help keep the earth healthy reduce your energy use!
