What is the problem with energy generation?
Most importantly, when power plants generate electricity, it is a continuous process. Furthermore, the process never stops. Moreover, it just keeps ongoing. On the positive side, this electric generation is fine when we are all at work or awake during the day. Whereas, during the night, when we are all asleep, we only need a fraction of the electricity. However, the power plants have to keep the electrical energy flowing. In conclusion, this is bad for the environment.
How do electric storage heaters use energy generation to their own advantage?
