The Coal Power Plant is a utility building that produces Power for your Sims.
Power Plants are designed to be connected to zones and buildings with Power Lines, but do not have to be as they provide power to other buildings within a three-tile radius and those buildings may relay that power to other buildings in another three-tile radius and so on.
The Coal Power Plant is the cheapest power solution in SimCity 4, edging out the Natural Gas Power Plant by having a lower monthly cost and producing more power. Of all the power plants in SimCity 4, only the Waste to Energy Plant is capable of producing more pollution.
It is positioned between the Waste to Energy Plant, Solar Power Plant and Oil Power Plant in power production, however it produces more pollution than the Oil Power Plant, much more pollution than the Solar Power Plant and slightly less than the Waste to Energy plant.
