  54. 55. <ul><li>In a hydroelectric power station like the one in Paute in Ecuador , the water rotates the turbines and the turbines turn the generators that make electricity. In a thermal power station, like the one in Emeraldas, gas is burned. The gas heats water and and turns it into steam. The steam rotates the turbines. Nuclear power stations have a nuclear reactor which heats the water, but in Ecuador there are no nuclear power stations . </li></ul>
  55. 56. <ul><li>Form power stations the electricity travels along thick wires, called power cables. These cables are carried by metal towers called pylons. Near towns and cities are then divided into thinner power cables and the power of the electricity is reduced . The thinner cables run along streets and are supported by concrete or wooden electricity posts. In some places, for example in Cuenca, the cables are inside special covers, and they are buried under the streets. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally, thin wires go into each house through a small box, called a meter. This measures how much electricity you use. Then they connect to the electrical circuit of the house. </li></ul>
