Power Sources

  • Solar—(renewable) Used primarily on Earth. Enormous solar fields capture energy from direct rays, and send it via cabling to relay stations, which store it up until certain levels are met. After the collectors are full, the energy is piped over to production facilities that are located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and the Ring of Fire in the former Pacific.
  • Wind—(renewable) A minor source of power, used in the polar regions of earth that are the only remaining agricultural areas. Some areas of Mars with moderate winds can sustain such power production, though others are incapable of maintaining the apparatus because of high to extreme winds.
  • Geothermal—(renewable) A secondary power source for Earth. Production facilities run on this type of power, which is converted from direct contact with heat from the earth’s Mantle layer. Growth faults are the primary location for these plants, because of the shallow depth of the Earth’s crust there.
  • Nuclear—(non-renewable) Only used on Mars. Almost like traditional nuclear power, only on a smaller, more efficient scale. Still results in toxic, radioactive waste, which is sent to storage facilities that have been mined out of the cores of Phobos and Deimos, Mars’s two moons.
