The Power Engineering Institute is Production Building that can be placed anywhere in the playable game area. It was added during an update on 07.12.2013.

Completion of the Power Engineering Institute (Level 1) provides access to purchase the Solar Farm Foundation and up to four Production Laboratories (in the Buildings tab), with the latter then providing access to purchase Additional Module Foundations at the Solar Farm.

A total of 70 assets are needed to complete construction of the Power Engineering Institute. This is equivalent to 70 Megabucks sm.png if one were to buy every asset instead of waiting to receive them from neighbors.

Each Production Laboratory provides access to purchase an Additional Module Foundation at the Solar Farm.

BUG!
In the iOS and Android version of the game, the player only has to purchase one Production Laboratory to be able to purchase all four Additional Module Foundations. In addition, the Production Laboratory does not need to be upgraded to a Production Complex in order to upgrade the Additional Modules (Level 1) to Additional Power Installations (Level 2).

Production Complex

Upgrade of each Production Laboratory to a Production Complex allows each Additional Module (Level 1) of the Solar Farm to be upgraded to an Additional Power Installation (Level 2).
