About: SimCity 2013 Tutorial - OIL POWER


you don't want Oil as a power plant 1. is produces smog 2. it is a dirty power plant 3. it is expensive 4. you need Oil to run it and 5. it produces petroleum sludge which lowers land value and pollutes your groundwater.   
Can someone answer me  this: It says 8.64k barrels a day consumption. Does it mean 8640 barrels a day burned? The oil drills produce like 2000~4000 barrels a day. 

Am i missing something?
I was wondering do global market prices fluctuate when you are playing multilayer vs private, or the sell/ buy prices stay the same
I pd rather use wind but in my 5th city has a crapload of oil i gave it to another city that used oil power of mine
hahahahahhahah
Actually, I've used 24 big ones in a large city. I had a small mesa to put them all on, so I did (until I converted to nuclear in another city and started buying).
Yep fuck the environment - if you want clean energy make hidrogen plants (yep there are few in the world but they are expensive) or wait until they finaly crack the fusion prosess and make the furst fusion power plant. For the wind turbens - to much space for 24. On thise small citys , use 24 big ones...... that is lol.....
You should know with wind, that you have a max of 24 turbines, so it's having 24 small ones, or 24 big ones, the equivalent of 48 small ones. P.S. Your not an environmental person, are you?
Actually, oil consumption has a typo, it is missing a decimal point, rates are actually this: Conventional: 3.6k Combustion: 1.2k Clean: 2.4k. Proof? Well, click on the power plant, it tells you the consumption rate with the decimal point.
Oil on Combostion is the way to go- (in the begining it's a rip off but it will pay off in the long run -because of the only 12k barrels consumtion) Coal- only on basic , the rest just is just consuming much more for nothing wind is good for start until you have enaugh for coal or oil (i think the basic and vertical turbines are the best -lirge one is duble space for less power) solar is just crap - to much space for nothig nuclear is the best but you need uni and collage so it wont blow up :D
Now that I've looked, I am not entirely sure that selling to neighbors is working. It seems you can gift them, but I am testing now to see how and if it works as we speak.
everything has pros and cons
It is the same as the global market prices.
Do I get paid more if delivering oil to a neighbor? And do they pay less?
Oil Is Everything...


Coal stock

Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008.
