How Exactly Does Electricity Get to Your Home?

You can use your fuse box near San Jose to interact with your electrical system, but the electricity came a long way before it made it to your breaker box. It also has to make a few stops before it gets to your home, but different elements come together to create a consistent electricity grid. Watch this video and learn how exactly electricity gets into your home.

Electricity starts out in a power generating facility. This facility uses renewable and nonrenewable energy to generate electricity before sending it through high-voltage transmission lines. These transmission lines move large amounts of electricity from one place to another, even across long distances. The next waypoint is a neighborhood substation, where the voltage is lowered. Then it moves through power lines and poles into your home, where you can access it through your outlets or cut it off with your circuit breaker.
