Why can't we harness solar energy to supplement the power requirements for POS's? Seems plausible enough with the energy amount varying depending on the size, type, distance from the system's sun.

Because we need isk sinks and NPC fuels for the use of POS are great isk sinks.

The minmatar shuttle already uses them.

Actually a supplement to the Power Grid of a Control Tower would be good, obviously there would be a CPU cost associated with it, exact trade off would have to be decided and balanced, but that's for the Dev's to decide on.

Who's to say it isnt?

Just because we don't manage it ourselves it doesn't mean it isnt there (ship Crews being a major Example)

Um, capsuleers don't need a crew. They can control the whole thing through the pod. You might want to read up on your backstory.

To the OP, I think that's a decent idea. I think they should also make a CPU upgrade at the cost of power, and only one can be up (solar or CPU). It will allow for some customization of the POS.

Okay, I just dug... and dug and dug and dug. I can't find any official information one way or another. I also found a lot of people countering the "crew" argument with the obvious "drones can do it" argument. I was under the impression that capsuleers controlled everything on all ships, and that was the POINT, to reduce death count in wars, but I'm seeing opposing arguments.

Ending threadjack. Solar panels are still cool.
