How Does Coal Make Electricity?

Answer

The coal is basically used just to make heat. Coal is pulverized and burned to turn water into steam. That steam is then used to turn the blades of a turbine that produces all of the electricity. After the steam is used it's condensed, cooled, and then used all over again. You can find more information here: http://www.duke-energy.com/about-energy/generating-electricity/coal-fired-how.asp
