The solid generator requires coal and outputs 20KW of power per each coal tick.
The generator is not on-demand, meaning if you put in 50 coal, it will burn 50 coal with the power potentially vanishing. An area power controller(APC) will allow you to charge a battery to help capture some of the wasted energy. The APC you will only charge 1KW of power to the connected battery (plus any downstream loads), effectively wasting about 95% of your coal.
Like the gas generator, solid fuel generator seems to need atmosphere to run, otherwise it will start and stop even if the power button is ON (game version: 0.1.1564.7373). This is no longer the case as of version 0.2.2396.10846, but you might be wasting exhaust gases?.
The Solid Fuel Generator produces 1 mol of CO2 and 3 mols of X per gas unit of coal burned. As the Generator has no gas output piping, it should be kept outside or in a sealed room to avoid polluting the player habitat.
