What do you mean by heavily favor to solid fuel?
I only counted energy cost of 8 beacons, but it appears there are 42. The speed bonus of the all 42 was already count by kirkmcdonald, so that is 34 additional beacons, which means +16.32 MW. We'll replace all number 70.04 MW with 86.36 MW.
Without counting beacons power consumption, the gain of making power with rocket fuel is still 66 MJ.
But with beacons that is now 66 MJ - 86.36 MJ = -20.36 MJ , which is how much less 4.62 rocket fuels make compared to 33 solid fuel.
And i didn't even count beacons used in oil processing in making solid fuel, so i can't even tell the total gains of either fuel. Oh, laying the assemblers and beacons in "double-burger" layout may reduce number of beacons you need, but i'm done testing
