EVE Online Blog: Sovereignty Features
The Upkeep system is the fortnightly (14 days) sovereignty bill each corporation will receive for every solar system they are managing and replaces the role of starbase fuel costs in our new sovereignty system. The base cost is currently 20 million ISK a day and mirrors the approximate current daily operational fuel cost of five starbases fuel cost. On top of this base fee is an additional fee for the infrastructure hub and any strategic upgrade (the upgrades which allow you to anchor the current or future sovereignty limited structures).
Upgrading your space!
If you have an infrastructure hub online in your solar system, you have the potential to install new infrastructure upgrades for that system. The upgrade interface is accessed through the context menu of the infrastructure hub when in range. There you will see a window detailing all the possible upgrades there are - the ones you have unlocked and can install if you so choose, the upgrades you have already installed and the upgrades you have not unlocked yet.
Installing the upgrades is easy, if it is unlocked, you can install it by being a station manager and dropping the upgrade from your cargo onto the upgrade in the menu as directed. You will get a classic "are you sure" confirmation and then it will be installed. If the upgrade is online, then it is providing the appropriate effects. If the installed upgrade is offline for whatever reason then it will have a red offline indicator.
