The Energy Transmitter is the building used for Energy Transmission, the process of sending power from one island to another island. You are able to build the Energy Transmitter both above and under water. A single Transmitter is able to send energy to at maximum four other transmitters or receive energy from any number of transmitters. It is however incapable of simultaneously sending and receiving energy, thus precluding the possibility of forming 'chains' of transmitters. Furthermore, its not possible to increase the amount of power an island can transmit or receive. This means that all islands are limited to 4 slots. If a new Energy Transmitter is build on an island where there already is a Transmitter, the new Transmitter will simply do the same task as the already existent Transmitter.

It also makes you able to use Geothermic Power Plant energy on normal islands, for example when building a monument, but this will still not remove the danger of a tsunami occuring on the underwater plateau on which the energy is produced.

  • The energy transmitter is first introduced in the mission "Long-Distance Supply" in the Saving a Miracle Campaign. It is however not required to complete this mission before building a Transmitter in a Continous game.


All upgrades for the Energy Transmitter are Research Projects available at the Academy.
