For other uses, see Power Plant.

The power plant is a vital building that produces power, necessary for the functionality of both GDI and Nod bases.


This unit provides power to the structures in your base. Power output is directly related to the Power Plant's condition, so protect them during battles. If they get damaged, you must repair them quickly or else some of your base defenses may cease to function. The Power Plant outputs 100 units of power.
- Command & Conquer (1995) manual

Game building

The power plant produces 100 power units, this amount is less than sufficient to run a big base. Meaning that the more buildings you will have, the more power plants you will have to build to maintain full functionality.

It is best to build advanced power plants as they produce a doubled power amount.

Power output is directly related to the power plant's condition, so protect them during battles.


Once built it allows the construction of several buildings, assuming that the construction yard is still standing.
