The coal generator is an electrical generator that creates power out of either Coal or Charcoal. A coal generator needs to be heated up before it can produce electricity. The casing heat of the generator must reach 100% before it can start producing a decent amount of electricity. The coal generator’s generation speed will increase the longer you leave it burning maxing at 10 kilowatts of power.
- If you fail to supply a constant fuel to the coal generator, it will cool down and you will have to reheat it all over again.
- The coal generator does not produce power unless it is connecting to another machine that uses it. This means that the generator does not actually contain any energy and only outputs it.
