In Tasmania the people get All their electric Power from water we Call Hydro electric Power. is very cheap and the tasmanian use everywhere. Many Homes Are every thing in them is electric electric stove electric refrigerator electric washing machine electric cleaner electric hot water system and radio Gram. The people in these Homes Don use Gas and they Don use fuel. They use Only electricity. Some people have Gas stoves for cooking but they also use a lot of electricity in their Homes. is very cheap and so the people can afford to use new electric appliances in their Homes. When we want to make electricity from water we take the water from a River the top of a Hill and then we let run Down the Hill quickly in big pipes. The big pipes take the water into a Power station near the River the Bottom of the Hill. The Force of the water turns a Turbo Generator very quickly inside the Power station and this makes electricity. The water then flows out of the Power station into the River. Sometimes costs a lot of Money to make electricity from water because we have to make Large dams to hold the water above the Power station. But Tasmania can make electricity from water very cheaply. is very fortunate. does not have to build Large dams. has a lot of Large lakes. The people can keep the water for their electric Power in the lakes. These lakes Are High up in the mountains and so the people Only have to build Power stations the Bottom of a Hill near the end of the Lake. Then they build pipes from the Lake to the Power station. They Don have to build big dams. The water is already there in the Lake and flows Down the pipes into the Power station. This Means that in Tasmania electricity is cheaper than is in the other states of Australia. Tasmania began to make electricity from water 60 years ago. Its first Hydro electric station was the Duck reach station neat Launceston. The Tasmania people built this Power station in 1895. Then they built Wadda Mana a.

They also built canals and pipelines to take the water from the lakes to the Power stations. Sometimes too they built Small dams the end of the lakes. These Small dams help to keep the water in the lakes. Thev spent �47,000,000 on these world s up to j 95 3. Now they spend about �10,000,000 every year the tasmanian people spend much Money on their hydroelectric schemes As they spend on All their roads railways hospitals and schools. Now they have a Hydro electric commission look after All their Power stations and to build More stations. Hydro electric Power is very important for Tasmania. Because is cheap Many Large industries Are there. Before Tasmania started to make cheap electricity from water there were hardly any industries there.
