How Natural Gas Creates Electricity

We use a combustion turbine plant to transform the natural gas into electricity.

  1. The combustion of natural gas forces turbine blades to spin.
  2. The spinning turbine is attached to a generator, which produces electricity.
  3. In a combined-cycle plant, exhaust heat is used to create steam. The steam turns an additional turbine and generator to produce more electricity.
  4. Steam is cooled in a condenser by water from a nearby river or lake. The condensed water returns to the plant and the cycle is repeated.
