Power generation

Power generators range from fossil-fuel powered plants such as gas-fired and oil-fired power stations to large nuclear reactors, to windmills, to photovoltaic cells that harmlessly capture the sun's rays. The size of these power stations vary from huge, multi MW plants capable of powering cities, down to small microgeneration units installed on roofs and in backyards suitable for small communities or business. Over the next 10 years, the electricity grid in Canada will undergo a series changes whereby new power plants will be smaller and probably built by private companies, instead of public utilities.


There are eleven ways to generate electricity: Wind, Geothermal, Biomass, Hydro, Tidal, Solar, Coal, Natural gas, oil, Nuclear, and Wind.
