Electricity from Solar Panels

Post by mikedabomb on Wed Feb 12, 2014 12:06 pm

I'm sure I did the math right in the past but now it's wrong.

I figured that I needed to optimize my usage of area and opted to build Solar Panels for electricity.  Though pricey, they gave more electricity per grid square than the alternatives. Better than the coal plants.(64 elec for a 2X2)  But now it looks like they are worse.

What I recall is the solar gave 16 per 1X1 grid (so if I build four in a 2X2 array I get 64 elec) but now it shows 14 per panel (only 56 elec per 2X2)

Was I imaging things? That would explain why I see so many coal plants at neighbors airports.

I remember them being 14 per panel for a long time, so yes you must have imagined things Wink
They're still sometimes useful over the coal because you can place them in loose spaces, not as one 2x2 block, for almost the same return.

I upgraded to coal plants only because they produced more power per capita and space was a premiium before G! major update.
The solar panels definitely look better.
