    Power users is a local group.

    Right click the folder then select properties > security> click "add". At the top of the "select users computers or groups" dialog box, use the "look in" drop down menu to choose your local machine. The either search for or scroll down and find "power users"

    Scripting folder permissions is a bit out of my league but the CACLS util may do it for you.

    I have found some useful code from this website:
