I'm having trouble with the eco-friendly appliances NAP, and I'm confused about the upgrades and power/water consumption. If I add a fuel cell, my industrial footprint goes up; yet I still have to install it to make an appliance eco-friendly?? Also, I put in appliances with higher power/water consumption ratings because I've read that higher ratings mean lower consumption. This seems correct, but having higher ratings also seems to make my tax penalties go up.
My penalties are really big (more than 4,000 simoles), and I'd love to get them down because my sim is pretty poor. The inspector specifically says the penalties are related to appliances, but I've done every upgrade that makes eco-friendly sense on every appliance. Is there something other than appliances affecting the eco-friendly appliances inspection? I have an insect farm and beehive, but the inspector doesn't seem to care about them. Might my campfire or BBQ pit be problems?
I'm having this problem too and also with the green gardening NAP. There are 8 plants in the front of the house even and the inspector isn't locked out of anything, they could see the plants as they walk up to the house! Unless 8 isn't enough, I'm not sure why my sim is getting a fine every week.

We spoke to all Eco Inspectors, and they have agreed that they should NOT be charging the Energy efficient appliances fine if your appliances are fully upgraded to be super efficient and amazing. I mean all that work and still get fined? Not in this house!
Fixed in Patch 1.69.57/ 1.35
