The Solar Array is your primary source of energy. Energy is used to power mines. If the mines lack enough energy, they will produce at a proportionally reduced capacity until you produce more by the following formula:
Production = Available Energy * Base Production
Required Energy


Example: You have a level 3 Ore Mine which requires 40 energy to operate at full capacity, which would produce 119 ore per hour. However, you have only a level 1 Solar Array, which produces 22 energy. Therefore your ore mine will produce (22/40) * 119 = 65 ore per hour. As soon as you upgrade your Solar Array to level 2, which produces 48 energy, your ore mine will operate at full capacity again.

Costs and Energy Production by Level

X = Level

Ore Cost = floor( 50 * (1.5)^X )

Crystal Cost = floor( 20 * (1.5)^X )

Production Value = floor( 20 * X * (1.1)^X )
