This diagram illustrates various ways to compare each power-generating structure to one another.
Power Source Comparison
Solar Panels are calculated at 54.17% efficiency due to their limited operation from 8:00-21:00, all others assume 100% efficiency.
Resource Efficiency or How many resources are used to build to produce 1 energy.
Cost to Build divided by Energy Produced. Generally, lower is more resource-efficient.
Space Efficiency or How much energy is produced per tile.
Energy Produced divided by tiles used. Generally, higher is more space-efficient. Supporting buildings are not included in this calculation. I may improve this section in the future.
