Power plants have varying amount of costs and produces variable amounts of power. Likewise, power plants also produce variable amounts of pollution, ranging from none such as wind turbines to very high such as a coal power plant.
Power plants also wear out gradually, losing capacity and raising maintenance costs. Once a power plant reaches the end of its useful life, it explodes (as well as releasing radiation, in the case of nuclear power plants), destroying buildings surrounding it, as well as requiring the player to replace it with a new one.
