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.
