How Does Water Get Changed To Electricity In A Dam Or Waterfall?
It’s simple, when the water falls in a waterfall or dam it spins a turbine under the water. That turbine is connected to a generator that creates electricity. Then the electricity is taken through an electrical circuit. Then into homes and buildings.
Some Hydroelectric Plants Are...
- Hydropower facilities can change the water temperature and river’s flow.This can harm aquatic wildlife.
The dams can change where the river flows, and the reservoirs can flood the surrounding land.
- The environmental consequences of hydropower are related to interventions in nature due to damming of water, changed water flow and the construction of roads and power lines.
