Electric is nor derived from fuel

Electric is produced via magnetism. The use of fuels is to spin turbines or generators that create a magnetic field, which also produces an electric fiels at right angle to magnetic flux.

The idea that fuel must be used to get electric is a myth at best and a shameful lie at worst. Hydroelectric does not burn a fuel, it uses the pwoer of falling water to spin the turbines.
