The standard Power Plant. Power output is directly related to the Power Plant’s condition, so protect them during battles. - Command & Conquer: Red Alert manual
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.
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.
