[NEEDS INPUT] Coffee maker using 7200 units of power on off the grid lot

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.63.136.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Place a coffee maker on an Off-the-Grid lot and accrue enough power with solar panels or whatever to power it. The one I was using when I discovered this bug was "Joe Jockey", but it happens with other ones. Take note of the power usage on your bills before you start brewing. Brew coffee. As soon as it begins brewing (after pouring in beans), check your bills again. You should see a notification that you've used up all your power and that you're now using over 7000 units of power on the lot.
What happens when the bug occurs? Brewing coffee instantly depletes all power reserves, then pushes power usage over 7000 units per day. The lot runs out of power, and the coffee pot can't finish brewing. The only way to fix it is to delete the coffee maker in build mode. I've tried this with other coffee makers, and they have different, but also extreme, power usages.
What do you expect to see? I expect a coffee maker to use an amount of power proportionate to what it does, not 7000 units of power.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Eco Lifestyle

Brewing coffee instantly depletes all power reserves on Off-the-Grid lots, then pushes power usage over 7000 units per day. The lot runs out of power, and the coffee pot can't finish brewing and nothing will work again on the lot until the coffee pot is removed. The only way to fix it is to delete the coffee maker in build mode.

 

The one I discovered this on was "Joe Jockey". I've tried this with other coffee makers, and they have different, but also extreme, power usages.

 

So coffee makers will eat up all of your power and make your lot unplayable if you use them Off-the-Grid. They also use a pretty huge amount of water for what they are.
