The Capacitor is used to increase the prison's Power Station electrical capacity, and it must be added by connecting it directly to the Power Station.
- As these are expensive, you should try to use them sparingly to begin with.
- Each capacitor adds another segment to the power bar of the generator it is connected to.
- The capacitor only provides another segment if it is adjacent to the generator. Connecting a capacitor 2 squares away even if connected to another capacitor will not add to the generator.
- When starting a new sandbox game, your delivery zone will already contain a prepaid Water Pump Station, Power Station and a Capacitor among other items, so no need to hold you back placing them in order to save money.
Example of a simple power chain with two Capacitors
Correctly placed maximum, all 16 capacitors.
