Does it matter if facilities are unpowered?
If the planet's economy can sustain 4 facilities of a type per city,
but half of them are unpowered, will that matter for the equation?

Good question, as the rules don't seem to specify.

However, you could simply ask to purchase our facilities, that you've now revoked power to, instead of trying to figure out whether they'll affect your stats.

Tomas, this is not the case. I have sent you a private message, explaining the developments in the system.

I'm pretty sure it's only powered facilities that alter stats.


Syn? Is that the case?

Additional question: Is that only SBR or all stats?

It seems a bit too "easy" for example, if I can eliminate crime-generation by simply turning off power.

I would've though unpowered facilities would attract squatters and burning trashcans and raise the crimerate if anything...

I'm pretty sure unpowered buildings do increase crime rate, but couldn't find any mention of it on the rules pages, even on the crime rate formulas.
But I do remember when I was building cities on a planet, when the buildings finished before the PG, I got increased crimerate daily until it was powered, I can only assume it's the same if the buildings are already there.
