I recently moved in null sec and I was wondering about the optimal setup for an excavation colony.

Currently, I have all the PI skills at IV and I want to setup a colony that produces P2 items.

With these prerequisites ( and, if you want, with all skills at V ): What is the optimal setup for planetary interaction?

Bonus: Any image will be greatly welcome and surely help everybody.

After some research, turns out that a really good way to manage power grid is to stretch the whole colony into a big line.

This way you save power grid necessary to put extractors close to hot spots, with the addition that you have a lot more room to move extractor heads (since the extractor itself is near the hotspot).

PI Scheme

I'll accept this answer in few days if nobody else answers.
