Distribution Activities

Electricity is generated at high voltages and is distributed to substations to be reduced in voltage for use in homes, schools, and businesses. Because electricity can be harmful if not treated appropriately, the process of distribution involves different levels of protection. Understanding how electricity is distributed to your house can help protect your home, protect you from injury, and also save you money.

The activities below help illustrate the concept of distribution:
