Power Efficiency Module
This module, just like the Yield Module and the Speed Module, has 2 attachment points that look like small squares on the flat side of the block. These attachment points can be placed against the attachment points found on the backs of refineries or all sides of assemblers to increase the Power Efficiency of the refinery or assembler by +50% per attachment point. As both kinds of production blocks have 8 total attachment points, the maximum Power Efficiency for those blocks is 500% (100% for a refinery or assembler without any modules), which brings down power consumption to only 20% its original value.
These modules only affect the active power consumption (while the production block is working); it does not affect the minimum power consumption of the machine when idle.
Total Power Efficiency = 1.2228445 ^ Attachment points connected to upgrade module, each module provides 2.

- To maximize power efficiency it would take 16 Motors, 80 Power Cells, 80 Small Steel Tubes, 160 Construction Components, and 400 Steel Plates just to get that extra 500% power efficiency.
- The fact that each attachment point is calculated separately means that you can span these across two machines or share them with a Refinery and an Assembler.
