Have you ever wondered about the electricity that you use every day? Well, I think some people might think about it if there don’t know anything about electricity in their country like me. For the starting exploration of the new school year, I have been a part of the exploration of Electricity. This is a new project for me because I didn’t know anything about electricity. For the past 7 weeks that I have been working on this project. I have spent a lot of time to research what are the resources that use to energy-generating right now and get some idea about renewable energy developing right now. We have divided people as a small crew and work on opposed task about electricity. My team we working on Thermal energy. We have been researching the type of thermal and we divided work to do. For me, I work on burning coal power plants. I have learned a lot about coal power plants how it impacts what will it affect if we burn a lot of coal to generate power. And also I have been to some of the trips with my whole team to study other ways of generating energy such as wind power, solar farm, and hydro power. One of my favorite trips when I went to Kampong Speu to visit the mini-grid provided by the Okra Solar Company. I have learned a lot about the smart grids that combine the flexibility of solar home systems that provide power to many homes. And my team also interviewed the villagers that live there to get some background about their lifestyle before they used Okra Solar and how they feel after.
After that exploration, I feel proud of how people use many types of ways to generate electricity. And this exploration also makes me solve my question about electricity.
