The percentage discount value depends on how much of the structure in question is surrounded by power generators - as structures can be of different sizes, different numbers of pgens fit around them. This means that a factory will be 50% surrounded with 8 t1 pgens, and recieve the same bonus as, a radar surrounded by 2 t1 pgens - 12.5%
