Power Stations provide the energy necessary for a colony and its structures to function.

Colony Power Balance

Colony Power Balance.jpg

A colony's power balance is shown on the bottom right of the planet management screen.

  • The above image shows that 760 out of the total 800 MWt available is being consumed by the colony
  • The total available power could be increased by constructing additional power stations or by upgrading an existing power station to a level that generates more power e.g. level 1 to level 2, or level 2 to level 3

  • Each civilization starts off with access to level 1 power stations
  • Level 2 and 3 power stations can be unlocked by researching the relevant technology (see 'Research to unlock' in the table above).

Constructing and upgrading

  • Level 1 power stations can be constructed directly.
  • Level 2 power stations can be built only by upgrading a level 1 power station.
  • Level 3 power stations can be built only by upgrading a level 2 power station.

  • Level: the tech-level of the power station
  • Upgrade: whether the power station can be upgraded
  • Power Generated: additional power (MWt) contributed to colony total
  • Personnel: number of colonists required to operate (contributes to employment)
  • Desirability: effect on colony happiness
  • PC (Power Consumption MWt): amount of colony power required
  • Be (Beron): cost in beron
  • Credits: cost in credits
  • Build: build time in seconds
