Energy Use in CT

Tionna Miller

graph explained
Graph Explained
  • Hydroelectic Power hasn’t increased or decreased. In the graph it shows from the year 1960 – 1999, it stayed right across the line all those years and hasn’t moved up or down.
disadvantages
Disadvantages
  •  Dams are extremely expensive to build and must be built to a very high standard.
  • The high cost of dam construction means that they must operate for many decades to become profitable.
  • The flooding of large areas of land means that the natural environment is destroyed.
  • People living in villages and towns that are in the valley to be flooded, must move out.
advantages
Advantages
  • Once a dam is constructed, electricity can be produced at a constant rate.
  • If electricity is not needed, the sluice gates can be shut, stopping electricity generation.
  • Dams are designed to last many decades and so can contribute to the generation of electricity for many decades.
  • The lake's water can be used for irrigation purposes.
