Batteries Don't Charge When Connected To Coal Generator

I don't know if this is a bug or decided game mechanic, but it seems logical that batteries would get some energy to store when being connected to the grid powered by a coal generator. There shouldn't be any difference between the coal generator and the hamster wheel in batteries getting power.


Steps to Reproduce
Hook coal generator to battery.

Strange, when I hook up a battery to the Coal Generator, it is indeed being charged.

As mentioned, are you certain that the Coal Generator was running and outputting energy at the time?

The batteries charge out of the "wasted" energy poured out by the coal generator.

If your coal generator is generating 800W of energy and your elecrtical system use 800W of energy, your battery won't charge up, simply because there's no energy left for them.

Try building another one, or more, and disable them as soon as all batteries are charged up.
