the SUN was not a choice. :P

Best answer:

Answer by CC
Generators produce electricity (energy) by converting energy from another source, such as coal, oil, nuclear, good old work (hand cranked generator), water from a waterfall, etc.

Electric motors consume energy, and in doing so convert electric energy into mechanical energy. They can supply power to spin a generator, but that's not an efficient conversion, and still, it would be the generator producing the energy, and the motor consuming energy.
