This is half bug-report/half suggestion. The crashed drop pods without batteries say they require some amount of MWH (lets say 20) to open. However, what they are looking for is a supply of 20MW until you open the door.
This means that if you don't open the door they will continue to suck 20MW which doesn't really make much sense if nothing is happening.
I would suggest the drop pod requirements say 20MJ (because 20MWH is a lot for a door) and when hooked to a power grid it won't consume any power until the door opens where it will start consuming 20MW for 1s to open the door.
Or it can say 20MW required and still only consume power for the 1 second of door opening.
To be even more correct, it could say X MJ at Y MW whereby you need a powerline capacity of Y MW connected for X/Y seconds and have a energy bar that fills up.
