The power plant was the standard power production facility used by the Allies and Soviets during the Second World War.


The standard Power Plant. Power output is directly related to the Power Plant’s condition, so protect them during battles.

During the Second World War, both the Soviets and Allies used identical power plants that followed a basic building architecture. Basic and advanced power plants share the same aesthetic designs, taken from tested and standard civilian power plant schematics generally used at the time.


After the war, the Allies replaced them with their own power plant while the Soviets switched to a new tesla-powered reactor.

Game building

The power plant produces 100 power units. This amount is less than sufficient to run a large base, meaning that the more buildings a base has, the more power plants it requires to maintain full functionality. It is best to build advanced power plants instead, as they produce a significantly larger power amount.

Power output is directly related to the power plant's condition, so they must be protected from enemy fire.

Low Power decreases production efficiency by 50% so keep them maintained.


Tiberium universe

It formed a basis for the new power plant in First Tiberium War.

Red Alert universe

The Allies replaced these plants with a more efficient design, while the Soviets replaced them with cheaper Tesla reactors.
