Why are you concerned with transporting electricity? why not oil or gas or coal?

Key Words:



Electricity is the most versatile form of energy, powering nearly every modern convenience, including: refrigeration, lighting, telephones, sewage systems — even the computer you're using now!

Once the transmission grids are built, electricity can be delivered from numerous sources over great distances. In essence, you are just moving electrons to provide the services we desire.

If you need to transport oil, gas or coal, each must be mined or extracted, moved by rail or pipeline and then burned in a furnace. Here you are moving molecules and generating a large waste stream.

Electricity transmission/distribution grids work regardless of the original source of generation. Studies show that moving electrons over molecules to be superior economically and environmentally.
