Generators decay in Scorched Earth when they are on so be sure to set up a wind turbine. They also decay slower when inside an Adobe structure and also when no one is on. Be sure to set up the auto on function for your generator when your turbines goes offline. To do that go up to your generator and hold Y or E and there should be an option to kick on when your turbines go offline.
I got a level 150 lightning egg and I was so excited to hatch the egg...that when I went to put the egg down I accidentally ate it instead. :( ps4 users: R2 ISN'T GONNA DROP THE EGG YOU'RE GONNA EAT IT LIKE ANY OTHER EGG. REMEMBER THIS. LOGIC BEFORE EXCITMENT.
