A Diesel Generator is a power-producing building that uses Diesel to generate Electricity and minor amount of Air Pollution.

They form the backbone of an initial power setup, requiring only Construction Parts and Electronics to assemble. Due to the need to consume Diesel to operate, it is recommended that at least one Basic Distiller is operating to supply the Diesel necessary to continuously operate.

These generators remain useful once more advanced power setups using turbines have been constructed, as a backup power supply when high and low pressure steam turbines fail. Setting the power priority lower for Diesel Generators than turbines facilitates this backup process.
