Water Electricity is electricity obtained from hydropower. Most hydroelectric power comes from the potential energy of dammed water driving a water turbine and generator.
Less common variations make use of water's kinetic energy or undammed sources such as tidal power. Hydroelectricity is a renewable energy source. The water in natural sources, such as lakes and streams, as well that in pools and hot tubs, is an excellent electricity conductor, and if you're in contact with the water when lightning hits, you'll probably be electrocuted.
However, it's not the water itself that's the problem; distilled water wouldn't carry the same risk. In many cases, connecting a poor household to the grid is a net loss for a utility, since it’s expensive and the poor don’t consume enough to make it up in revenue.

The poor may also lack running water, basic sanitation, consistent food supplies, quality education, sufficient health care, political influence, and a host of other factors that may be harder to. Interestingly, if the water contains very large amounts of solutes and ions, then the water becomes such an efficient conductor of electricity that an electrical current may essentially ignore a human body in the water and stick to the better pathway to conduct itself—the masses of ions in the water.Water supply and sanitation in Indonesia is characterized by poor levels of access and service quality.
