What is Hydro Energy?
Hydro power is a renable energy source. It uses water It uses water stored in dams and in flowing water to create electricity. Many Countrys use hydro energy like Australia they have more than 100 electric plants.
How is Hydro Energy Made?
Hydropower is mainly made by flowing water that creates energy that can be captured and made into electricity, This is called hydroelectric power. Their's different types of Hydroelectric power plants but the most common one is a dam to store water in a reservior. When the water is released from the reservior it flows through a turbine , spinning it whitch as it turns it activates a generator makeing electricity
Way we use Hydro Energy
Hydroelectric power is one of the oldest methods to producing power. We can use it in our daily basis, for example we use it to power light, or different types of machines
we should use Hydro Energy because it's renewable. Hydro power also helps increase the air we breathe because it don't release polutants into the air. Hydro Power contributes to the storage of drinking water because it colects rainwater whitch then can be usedfor irrigation. And it's much safer because it dosen't contain any fuel.
Since Hydro Energy is mostly captured by Dams, sometimes we coulde have a natural disaster that can cause the dam to break and making dams is very expensive. A Drought can potentially affect a hydroelectric power plant because energy prices is dirctly related to how much water is available. There are limited reserviors for a hydroelectric power plant.
Why I Think Hydro Energy Is Something We Should Use More.
I think Hydro energy is a good source of power because it's renewable and it's completly safer than mostly all other sources of power becasue it doesn't release any polutants into the air the only polutants released is when they make the power plant. It's also very reliable because there is very little fluctuations.
Why I think You should include more of Hydro Energy
I think we should include more of Hydro energy beacsue it's very good for the envirment.And other types of energy probably contain some types of fuels and Hydro power dosn't it doesn't release any polutants. So i think we should all use Hydro power so we'll have a safer envirment.
