Hey guys, really enjoying the start on the New server!

I am planning to make a community power-plant that everyone can use for free. I will be making it out of my own resources, but the occasional material donation will definitely be appreciated since EE2 no longer exists. I'm thinking I might make a nuclear plant because those are just hella cool, but I'm very open to suggestion!
I will try and make it a central building so that power lines won't have to run to far.

Please let me know what you want in the polls!


UPDATE #1 Me and Hexus_One are collaboratively working on a scaffold powered generator farm! This will include 512 generators generating a total of 5120EU/t. Free for everyone!

UPDATE #2 Planned Generator design:
               
Spoiler:

UPDATE #3 My design was stupid so we are going with this:
             
Spoiler:

UPDATE #4 This has been put on hold due to everyone around spawn having a decent early game power supply. I will complete my ManCave 2.5 first, and then            focus on finishing this, as more power will be needed late game as people progress.

UPDATE #5 This will be re-ignited over the weekend. (ha, get it?) We plan to finish it this weekend as well, with power being routed above ground within a decent reach of a variety of houses. This power will be MV (128EU/t) as a safety mechanism. This is because a lot of people have already attained MV power, adding the necessity for at least 1 transformer upgrade. The supplied MV will allow it to be connected directly to your system without multiple explosions, this is especially evident in the case of the Induction furnace, which cannot be upgraded and explodes past MV. If you wish to have access to higher power, please talk to me or Hexus_One, we'll review your case and do it for you.

DO NOT ALTER THE POWER LINES. This is a task for me and Hexus_One only.

I'm thinking that instead we could build an IC2 generator tower fuelled by a tree farm using MFR. You can get more fuel efficient if you craft the logs into scaffolds instead of smelting them into coal.
Best startup option IMO

EDIT: Here's my idea for the tower design

Pictures:
Ignore the generators in the background
This design uses ~1 glass fibre per generator so it's a bit cheaper.
You can tesselate the design like Jonno's, and it has the same generator:volume ratio.

I just ran the numbers:
You want to generate a total of 5120EU per tick.
If we use scaffolds, a log would provide about 10667EU.
That means we need to produce a log every 2 ticks, or 10 logs per second.
The harvester harvests a block every 5 ticks, or 4 blocks per second (including harvesting leaves).

tl;dr the farm isn't fast enough.
However this can be fixed if I add more harvesters, which I plan to do later on.
