How Do we Make Energy?
Coal, Natural gas, and nuclear energy are used to make heat to convert liquid water to steam.  

Steam spins the turbine.  Within the spinning turbine a big magnet is rotated around a length of wire, creating a magnetic field that electrifies the wire. Electricity goes out of the wire to transformers, and from transformers to us!

 Instead of steam, wind power or running water can be used to spin the turbine.
