Why do we need power?

What is power? Power is the ability to do work. You use power when you move, you pull or you push things. There are many different kinds of power.

In our everyday lives, we use power. We need electricity to run everything in our daily lives. We can’t live without power(electricity). We can’t imagine what life is without electricity. Every night time, we consume a lot of electricity, because we need light so that we can see. Without proper lighting, traveling would be risky. Whether its during the day or night, electricity keeps our lives in order. It affects our business, schedule and entertainment.

Electricity is very important in our lives because almost everything we use is operated by electricity. Electricity enables us to use machines like televisions, computers, phone, air condition, microwave, fridge, and fans which makes our life much easier. As long as the electricity is still available, we don't really think how important it is. The importance is only realized when it runs out.

Electricity runs everything in our everyday life. Gas stations can’t pump gas without electricity. Business have to close because their cash registers won’t work. Restaurants can’t also cook food without it. In our houses, everything we need and enjoy are plugged in a wall socket and requires electricity.

Electricity comes from many sources. Some of them are renewable and some of them are non-renewable. Renewable energy is an energy that comes from resources which are naturally replenished such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat.

People nowadays don’t really realize how important electricity is. Most of the energy sources we depend on, like coal and natural gas can’t be replaced. Saving electricity doesn’t just save money, it also saves the environment.
