You neglected the context of my quote. Getting electricity in the empty hull of the Yokohama. Electricity near a vacuum. And the best vacuum would be in an exposed cargo hold of the Yokohama.

While the dam may provide electricity, you can't get that electricity up to the Yokohama very easily.

The best way to produce electricity on the Yokohama would be through solar cells/panels. My question was, does the Yokohama still have any?
