[NEEDS INPUT] [GF] Drone will not stream in powered 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? 1.63.134.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All Expansion Packs, All Game Packs, Fitness Stuff, Kids Room Stuff, Laundry Day Stuff, Moschino Stuff, Movie Hangout Stuff, Romantic Garden Stuff, Spooky Stuff, Tiny Living, Toddler Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have an lot with the 'Off the Grid' trait with excess energy production
What happens when the bug occurs? The 'Stream' option on the Drone is greyed out and the tooltip on hovering over it states 'The internet does not work off the grid'.
What do you expect to see? While the 'Internet does not work off the grid' is normal for lots with 'Off the Grid' trait, there are similar options on the Sim Phone and Computer that start working once the Lot is producing enough/excess power. If the internet can work for those, why not for the drone?
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? Neutral/Not Sure

I'm also having this issue, and the only workaround is putting the drone on Sim's inventory and starting a stream from there.
