Electricity in the U.S.

This is a good website because it breaks down how electricity is generated. In the United States, most of the electricity is produced using steam turbines. A turbine takes kinetic energy of a liquid or gas to a mechanical energy. Steam turbines, which are powered by fossil fuels burn to produce steam. Most of U.Ss electricity is generated using fossil fuels. Fossils fuels consist of coal, natural gas and petroleum. In the United States, one-fifth of the power is nuclear power. I like this website because there are a lot of graphs and diagrams to demonstrate what is being discussed.
