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