The solid generator requires coal or charcoal, the latter is renewable. It will output 20kW of power per game-tick, each Coal burns for 10 ticks and each Charcoal burns for up to 6 ticks (but less if a stack is used).


The generator is not on-demand, meaning that it will burn the fuel even if nothing is using the power. Without a station battery most of the power generated by a Solid Generator will be lost. An area power controller(APC) can charge its attached battery with 1 kW per tick, a small battery charger can take 400W in each slot and a battery charger can take 500W in each slot.

With 18 coal pieces a station battery can be fully charged. This is about 3 coal pieces per indicator light.

It's possible to use the regular cable coil as long as 5kW or less of the power produced is used. This is because a cable will only burn when the power usage exceeds its limit, it will never burn from a high power generation. A Station Battery will always take all the power that is available, which in this case means 20kW, only a heavy cable coil can handle that much.

The Solid Generator have no connection for a waste pipe, all the hot exhaust gases are just released around it. This will kill plants and harm non-robotic player characters, so it's best used outdoors or in an airtight room. When Coal is burned, each one will release 10 mol of CO2 and 3 mol of X. When Charcoal is burned, each one will release 3 mol of CO2 and 3 mol of X.
