Cheap electricity is still possible to obtain today. With the advanced progress of technology, humans are starting to utilize all sorts of ways to obtain power and electricity from renewable sources. We will see an increase in this availability over the next decade. The more money that countries and organizations spend in the research and development of alternative sources of energy the better. As a side note, wouldn’t be nice to not have to plug anything into an electric outlet and either go wireless or use a different type of power supply? Just look behind most entertainment centers in the home of the average American and you will see cords and wires going everywhere. Not to mention all of the extenders and extra extension cords that are used. One day this will all be gone and life will be so much simpler. The most traditional commons out of all of them is the hydrothermal plants designed and constructed on river dams. As long as there is water pressure, there will be power available. Another renewable source is solar power, which can utilize the power of the sun in order to store and use energy.
There are sources however that some people deem as unsafe or untrustworthy. These are the nuclear power plants in which highly radioactive materials are processed inside silos (enclosed chambers) and induced to chain react by electron bombardment. This process in turn produces heat and energy which can later be turned into electricity.
The most common form or source of electricity, especially for providers who use electricity for business are the coal driven or fossil fuel driven power plants. In there, the fuels are burned and ignited to create heat to power up the turbines that supply the generator to create electricity. Because of the steadily increasing demand for fossil fuels, its decline and the increasing prices for the commodity, these power plants are nearing their extinction. They are one of the reasons why a country or place fails to have cheap electricity to boot.
Other people may opt to use other more modern ways to come up with electricity. Human power for example. A stationary bike may be attached with a generator to generate electricity. A battery may be provided to store the electricity. Other fuels are now being utilized such as recycled garbage which are also able to present a significant amount of heat when ignited. Whatever the sources are, it is undeniable that electricity is a prime commodity.
