## Is the factory energized?

Hello how are you ?.

I have been working on a new chapter concerning the electrification of factories.

I would like a new function that allows me to know if the factory is being energized.

Example: factory_x.is_energized()

#### Dwachs

the best would be to check factory method get_pwer() to check whether something was consumed in the current and last months

It looks fine.

But there is still a small problem that I still cannot solve, I need to know if the transformer of a factory is connected to the power plant (if there is electricity).

Is that possible?.

This is not possible currenly

Apparently there is an error when the energy values of the current month are obtained, by some they return to "0" before the month ends.

the entry
• is the current power supply/production. Entries with higher index are the sums of production / demand of previous months

I understand that the index "0" corresponds to the current month, the problem I see is that the value returns to "0" for some reason.

Look at this:`                    local f_list = [coord(36, 4), coord(95, 39), coord(76, 26)]                    f_power = 0                    for(local j=0;j<f_list.len();j++){                        local tile = square_x(f_list[j].x, f_list[j].y).get_ground_tile()                        local factory = tile.find_object(mo_building).get_factory()                        if (factory){                            local power = factory.get_power()[0]                            f_power += power                        }                    }                    gui.add_message(""+f_power+"")`
