Cru'ela Power Generation Facility

Outside the city to the north along the coast, approximately 15 km away lies the main power generation facility for not only the city of Cru'ela but the entire Mirian colony.

It is a mix of three types of power generators. Wind, water and solar.

Wind Power

Their is a large wide barren wind swept plain stretching away from the cliff that plunges down into the ocean at this location. Here approximately 500 meters from the edge are located 500 large wind turbines. These massive structures stand almost 500 feet tall with 4 large blades which are each 50 foot long.

They are spaced about 25 meters apart in rows of 50 stretching north and south. This allows them to take full advantage of the almost constant breeze comeing in off the ocean.

Water Power

At the base of the cliff is a 5 km long concrete structure built against the base of the cliff out into the ocean for a distance of approximately 100 meters. This facility is able to convert the never ending pounding waves into useable energy.

Solar Power

Built into and on the cliff which is about 300 to 400 meters tall along this stretch of the coast are a large number of solar panels, mirrors, solar collectors and other energy collecting devices designed to harvest power from the sun.

Also built into the cliff are a large number of walkways and stairs that allows technicians to reach almost any section of the cliff from the water facility at the base to the top of the cliff above. All these walkways and stairs have railings and safety barriers.
