Water Energy Facts

by Ivy Long

It hard to believe that water can be produced into electricity. The two are a dangerous combination and should never be mixed. True so never bring your stereo into your shower. Hydro Energy is water made into electricity. How it works is, water flowing down a river is used to spin turbines inside a generator. Fast flowing rivers work the best. Canada is the most Hydro powered country in the world, the United States comes in second. So in the future if you live by an ocean you could be using Hydro Energy.
