Thermal Expansion: Early game power system

An early game power system

If you have been mining a fair bit and got some Redstone you can basically start building on your first power system. This power system uses the mod Thermal Expansion and is fairly easy and cheap to make. It’s a very basic setup but should get you started keeping your electric furnace and pulverizer powered. This system uses a burnable item, such as coal, charcoal or any type of wood combined with water to produce steam with the steam dynamo. Be sure to check the stats and the screenshots for settings you don’t want to forget.
