Current electricity- is powered by things like power plants, wind mills, solar energy, and burning fossil fuels. Current electricity is used to power things like light bulbs, televisions, and kitchen products.

Static Electricity- is powered by electrons moving from one thing to another and there is not enough power to power things we use everyday.
