The Big Dig modpack is full of machines that require power. Here is everything you will need to know to get started with energy production and handling.
These conversion rates can be altered in the file config\Mekanism.cfg

There are multiple ways of storing energy in Big Dig.
- Thermal Expansion: With TE come a lot of machines and all of these machines need power of some kind. The Redstone Energy Cell is the only available storage option in Big Dig from TE.
- Mekanism: Mekanism has advanced machines. They can get their power from a direct energy source, but also from Energy Cubes (that store the energy inside).
