I had a question about power generation that was confusing me for awhile, I hope someone can clear it up. A specific amount of power is generated by the power plant. If I am not using all the power that I can use, where does it go? is all the power always in use? if it is not in use, then how do they conserve it and "send it" when required. for example, 1. I turn my light on, I am using power X 2, I turn my light off I am using no power Is that power "X" still in use (ie. the electric distribution uses the non used power that it has)?
