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.

It consumes about 16 coal pieces to fully charge a stationary battery. This is about 3 coal pieces per battery indicator light.

Connect your generator to a stationary battery with heavy cable coil to store all 20kW of power being produced.

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.
