A power conduit transmits power from generators or batteries to appliances up to six squares away. Conduit doesn't block the placement of other structures and isn't blocked by them, so conduit can be placed wherever it's needed, even in walls, except unsmoothed mountain rock and mineral ores.
A conduit can short circuit, damaging a random piece of conduit and discharging all connected stored power from batteries, in an explosion proportional to the amount of charge. This damage can be mitigated by building walls over your power conduits (preventing fires), keeping critical areas and storage away from conduits, and disconnecting charged banks of batteries from the network via a power switch.
