- [Narrator] We use electricity every day.

It powers our homes, our work,

our entertainment and more.

But have you ever wondered where it comes from

and how does it show up at the flip of a switch.

Energy companies like Idaho Power

use machines called generators

to convert energy from flowing water, wind, steam,

or gas into an electrical current we can use.

That current is created by using a turbine

to move a magnet inside a coil of copper wire.

At Idaho Power about half of our energy

is produced by hydroelectric projects

on the Snake River.

At a dam,

moving water from the rivers flow

spins hydro electric turbines.

The turbines rotate a generator shaft inside

a coil of copper wiring, creating electricity.
