Standing lamps consume 30W of power to produce light, with a maximum of 50% illumination. In a 9-tile radius, lamps are bright enough to prevent work speed penalties, grow decorative plants, and prevent the debuff "In darkness". However, they are not bright enough to grow most crops indoors - which require 51% illumination. Light does not "stack", so no amount of standing lamps are bright enough for rice plants.
Standing lamps can be set to darklight mode, which will please Ideoligions that prefer darkness.
The lighting that can be seen represented by in-game visual differences does not always correspond to the actual % of light on a tile. Also note that areas that are not in direct line of sight with a lamp can be quite well lit. Using multiple lamps close to each other also gives the appearance of "white light" and a more well-lit area, though this has no actual effect in-game.
In the image below, the entire corridor is fully lit at 50%, even though the lamps are not in direct line with each tile. However, the tiles diagonally above the lamps, on the other side of walls, are in total darkness, whereas they appear to be partially lit in the screenshot.

With the Advanced Lighting research, the power cost of standing lamps are halved, to 15W of power. Lights can also be changed to a variety of different colors, which have no gameplay effect. Standing lamps of different colors will blend together.

Ideoligions allow the selection of styles which then change the texture of the certain items and buildings when constructed by the colony. These style variants can be crafted if the colony has the selected style, or can be looted from raiders from factions with the requisite style.
- Ideology DLC Release - Standing darklamp added.
- 1.4.3523 - The Colored Lights research was replaced by the Advanced Lighting research. Light color selection system added, including darklight option. Standing lamp (red), standing lamp (blue), and standing lamp (green) unlockable variants, as well as the standing darklight merged into the standing lamp, in both role and in existing saves.
- 1.4.3555 - Fix: Lamps unconnected to a power grid do not properly have reduced power consumption once advanced lights is researched until you reload.
