Every Kilowatt Of Energy Tells A Story
The life of a kilowatt is quite interesting and one most of us have never even considered.
From it's beginning as:
- a nuclear reaction in the sun,
- emitted as light by the sun,
- travelling across space to earth,
- being converted into a tree,
- then eaten by a dinosaur,
- then by a bigger dinosaur,
- then an even bigger dinosaur,
- then trapped in a swamp,
- then stored for millions of years as oil,
- then released by an oil rig,
- travelling in an oil tanker to a refinery,
- then travelling to a power station,
- converted into electricity,
- travelling along high voltage power lines,
- through a transformer,
- into your home/business,
- into your socket,
- into your iPhone/smart phone
- and gives you a few hours usage on your Facebook page or YouTube account.
