Q&A: Why are there no Solar Panels ?
This question was possibly duplicated with a more recent answer: June 8th, 2021 Livestream Q&A: Are there any plans to bring things like Solar Power & Electric Vehicles to the game? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEC_Inpb8Cg
why are there no solar panels um i don't know it's it's not impossible that we add like more like you know solar panels and stuff like that um i believe in the beginning it was more of a lore thing where um you know you're you're destroying this environment everyone didn't want to give you an option to like not do that so like you know the theme of the game kind of like as you industrialize the planet you you wreck it more and more you know so so that was the main reasoning why we didn't have it before uh i don't know if that's the reason why we're like i don't know if that's reason enough to stop us right now um it's not impossible that we add more stuff like that
