The power line carries electricity over long ranges. It is available during the start of the game, after building the first road.


Power lines carry electricity over distances. Power jumps across streets and from one building to the next, but for longer distances you need to build power lines. Start and end a power line at the perimeter around a building.


The power line, despite being an electrical structure, does not actually produce electricity. Rather, power lines are meant to distribute power of one general area with a functional power system to another unconnected area.

Power lines are not necessary to transfer electricity from building to building. All buildings within a small range distribute electricity to each other. Power lines are used mainly to provide electricity to areas that cannot be connected by the power grid from the small range.
