Understanding the Electrical Grid [Infographic]

0

Electricity is an important part of our life. From workplaces to homes, most of the tasks we do require electrical energy. We are always connected to the power grid, which keeps our homes heated, our food refrigerated, our workspaces lit and our computers running. Power plants, power, transmission points and power cables have become a part of the landscape and it’s a fact that we hardly notice them.

But have you ever actually thought about the system that generates electrical energy, carries it across miles of transmission lines and then delivers it to your home or workplace?

As you can see in the infographic below, our electrical grid is a network of substations, power plants, wires, transformers, sensors and poles that carry power sometimes hundreds of miles to be distributed to our offices, homes and schools.

Cool Uses for Drone Video [Infographic]

Cool things about Drone Video Thumb

With the recent laws in place regarding drones and how the FAA has clamped down on allowing drones to fly without any regulation whatsoever, many companies have found that drones can provide some great purposes for commercial use, but only if done by somebody that follows FAA rules and regulations so they don’t interfere with air traffic. All too often amateur drone operators have given drone videography a bad name, but it’s time to see how drones can be an asset instead of a liability. The Cool Uses for Drone Video infographic details how drone video can provide valuable services for industries such as real estate, hotels and resorts, golf courses, insurance companies, construction companies, agriculture, and even for those looking to get married.
