Power Storage

Got excess power? Want to store it for dire times when power is low? Why not put it into a power storage, which can be used when power is low. Also puts into use power plants that have employees and still generate the same amount of power, no matter how many employees are working.

Batterie idea have been suggest
But the rescousse batterie for hard moment can be usefull it can look like for the small 1×1 an acumulator
Store 1000 power
For the médium 2×2 a more big
Store 5000power
And for the Giants model 4×4
Two tower with acumulator on the oposite side
When work the two tower touch
Them and do an power arc
Store 50 000 power

This is nice. Especially since I made a post about this before.
But I don't blame you this is a great idea :)

it would be very useful when times get tough.
.
I'd suggest having a power cell plant that drains a fair amount of charge and every now and then creates a battery cell.
this battery cell can then be used with another building.
.
but this would all need to be equivalent or even make a loss somehow so players don't make an ouroboros powered base.
you know....use 20 steel to create a battery to power your entire colony and from this 20 steel you were able to process 200 steel into 10 times the batteries powering the base then for 10 times longer to create 200 batteries and so on.

Something to be used in emergencies that isn't very efficient for the long term

Cost of a battery:
500 ore
100 gold
50 steel
4 microchip
50 uranium
Store 100 power for 30 minute

Can be use in a battery centre
Which look like to an accumulator

batteries could be useful, but I wouldn't make them tradeable because you could send your subcolonies power if you wanted and that's sort of cheating because they are just mooching off of your power. I would also make battery storage very limited to make sure that people don't build up a huge supply and then live off of that supply for days without power.

After that we can just make a few buildings that consume batteries and produce power. The higher the tech, the more efficient the battery usage and power production becomes. They would default to deactivated once built and would only turn on once power reaches 0. Once the building detects that other power sources are back up, it shuts off again.

How does that sound?

it sound good for not tradeble and auto activation
so battery:
-cost more than they can product
-need a building to be use and an other to product them
-they can't be tradeble with other colony
-the hight tec of battery (3 tec,smal,medium,large) can't product more than they cost
-the building wich use battery active himself when energy runing out and use a battery to do it

Sure. I just originally meant a building which stores power, so that when you over build and power is low, instead of having all buildings not operate until power is back up, this will be like a buffer...
