All you people who like PI and have played long enough must have realised that most difficult thing in this game is power management, and to a certain point staff management. I thought of making a table available which considers profitability, energy consumption and staff for each building. For now I just named these as energy efficiency and staff efficiency, later on i might change it to appropriate names and/or will add proper description with calculation. I am using all the data from existing pages only.


Here I will add efficiency of the buildings at level 5 upgrade, without any totems of prosperity or oracles of fortification at 100% accumulation considering repair time and costs. Higher efficiency value means it makes more profit with less energy.
