As is, there is no difference in the grid view between "Production" and "Consumption". To avoid running into outages without the addition of energy storaging techniques like say SMES based on Quickwire, it would help greatly to visualize the maximum power consumption based on the currently set clock rates over all the machines connected to the grid. This could be set as a replacement for the "Production" line in the grid view.
I get that production follows consumption until the max capacity so intake consumption at the power plants is lower than 100% if we run below capacity. Then maybe don't replace production with the suggested line but simply add it to the grid view, pretty pweas.
