Hydroelectricity is fast running water that generates electricity. It uses a huge generator to produce first mechanical energy and then to electrical energy.
Hydroelectricity comes from various dams around the world. Dams pipes and tunnels are man made structures that help store and channel water to the turbines. These structures are called power houses.
The turbine spins when water runs through it creating electricity. Hydroelectricity is when a lake behind a dam pushes the water through a hole and inside the hole is a turbine connected to a generator.
