Used to transfer electricity provided by Power Stations around the prison.

Following Objects have to be in 15 tiles range inside a building to be automatically connected to the power grid:

Items that need power will only connect using the small cables if they are inside. Outdoors, every item (except Lights) that needs power will need a direct connection. If such an item fills multiple squares, such as the Door Servo, the Electrical Cable must be built on the square with the flashing power symbol. This is usually apparent for Road Gates.

Electrical cables can not be built through a Perimeter Wall (or Water), and building a Perimeter Wall over any existing cable will remove it.
