How can I make my transporter deliver Energy Cells to another one of my stations?

Try this mod:
It allows you to exange all ressources you want between 2 stations you own.
I tested it. it is simple and efficient.
The only things it misses for me is the ability to deliver more than one station with one ship.

Enjoy!

PS: It's like the CAG mod in X3 if you already used it.

Dude, Thanks can't wait to try that out.

This is however moot in the context of the OP's example - from their opening post they were apparently building a water production facility in essence and integrating a Solar Power plant with it not only addresses their concern over supply chains but also makes perfect sense and would not take that long to build - they would only have to add the solar power plant module rather than have to build the power plant, storage, and docking modules which would take demonstrably longer to do.

In game progression terms, starting with a smaller station and adding to it over time actually should result in quicker progression on balance - we do not start off as multi-billionaires with the credits and resources to build mega-shipyards from day one.
My goal is to expand on the stations and what I want to build after I get the Water Production working. I just needed a proof of concept first. It's not my endgoal in X4 to produce water. :)
I just like to have specialised stations and a supply network with ships. It looks and feels nice. I know it's less efficient, I just would rather not build hybrid stations if possible.
Integrating Energy supply with a Water production facility is one of the more logical complex combinations in X4.

Not building hybrid stations as you call them has not really made sense since complexes were properly introduced in X3. If you are expanding as you go along then complexes are really the way to go - building integrated supply chain complexes is a clear winner - and if you plan them appropriately they can look pretty neat, tidy, and logical.

Lets take an integrated food production facility as an example:
  1. Solar Power Plant(s) - Add traders (E-Cells are free)
  2. Water plant(s) - Add miners (Need ice)
  3. Wheat Farm(s)
  4. Spice Farm(s)
  5. Meat Farm(s)
  6. Argon Food Plant(s)
You can follow similar patterns for Paranid and Teladi foods (different intermediate factories but the same principles can apply). Such complexes need not be that large either and there is value in adding Medical Facilities and Habitation Modules too since the Habitation modules will increase production and the Medical Facilities typically use the same source factories and produce wares required by the Habitation modules.

Historically, mixed ware complexes could look an absolute mess but as of X4 the situation is somewhat different.
