Electricity generation

There are a number of ways to generate electricity, and Synergy harnesses both non-renewable and renewable energy sources to ensure we have all bases covered.

What is electricity generation?

Electricity is most often produced at a power station where turbines are powered to spin, causing large magnets to turn within wire coils, or generators.

Wind turbines also use a generator while solar cells convert sunlight directly into electricity.

Once we’ve generated it, it can be transferred to you.

Renewable and non-renewable resources

Renewable energy is a source of energy that can be replenished, and will never run out. The two renewable sources of energy Synergy uses to generate electricity are wind and solar.
 
Non-renewable energy are sources of energy that can not be replaced or replenished.You may have heard these referred to as fossil fuels and include coal, oil and natural gas.
