All Outpost Power Items and Building Costs

Jessica Dillon

If you want your outpost to get moving, then you are going to need to provide power. The power section is made up of machines that generate power and things like light posts to help guide your way on dark nights. Making them doesn’t take a lot of intricate materials usually and you can make a couple of power items early on. The guide below goes over every power item you can build for your outpost in Starfield.

You will need to build power sources and connect them to different items to give them power.

All Power Sources and Their Building Costs

Power sources allow to to operate connected electronics in your outpost. Each power source can only put out a set number of power and some will only work on planets that get a lot of sun or are windy. You will need to look at the list below and pick the right type of power provider to ensure that your outpost is running smoothly. After placing an item that provides power, you also have to wire the object your trying to bring to life to it. Below are all the types of power sources available in Starfield.

Starfield is an action role-playing game from Bethesda Game Studios set in a futuristic interpretation of space exploration and colonization. Earth has long been abandoned, but there are plenty of other planets in different star systems where humans have ventured and settled. You have the freedom to create your own character with a unique background, but the main story will take you through a series of adventures as you uncover more information about mysterious artifacts which create gravitational anomalies. Along the way, you can build and customize your own space ship, establish your own outpost, befriend and romance new companions, and more. As a Bethesda game, you can also expect to see a lot of creative mods which have the potential to change your experience of the base game, or take it in an entirely new direction.
