I'm having trouble with the metal refinery and the heavy powerplants and wires.

Even when I make sure to make it a priority and to supply materials, power and water, the metal refinery often goes unused. The 1200w requirement seems make it squirrely. I had to use heavy wire directly which is likely to result in waste.

I linked a coal plant to a battery then the battery to a transformer then from the transformer's output, I snaked conductive wires (2kW) and some of them broke, I'm not sure why. I would have thought the transformer was specifically to avoid that. Some of the wires that got damaged had nothing at the other end.
