Solar Panel is a base building product.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Solar Panel is a base building product that generates power from solar energy during the daytime. It can be connected to various base building products with Electrical Wiring to supply power to them.

Game description[edit | edit source]

An efficient power generator, this solar array will turn sunlight into the electrical energy required to power many base structures.

Generates no power at night. Partner with Batteries to store energy for the hours of darkness.

Source[edit | edit source]

The blueprint can be obtained from the Construction Research Station aboard the Space Anomaly, costing 8 Salvaged Data to unlock.

Build[edit | edit source]

Solar Panel can be built using a blueprint and the following ingredients:

NOTE: Blueprint from Synthesis needed for proof of this formula

Power generation[edit | edit source]

A Solar Panel will output 25kPs of power in the morning and then peak at 50kPs (outputs) during the day. At night, a Solar Panel outputs 0kP of power due to insufficient light. Solar Panels are best paired with Batteries to store excess power during the day, in order to supply power while Solar Panels are offline at night.

Interacting with a Solar Panel displays power grid information, including total power currently generated by all connected generators; total power currently consumed by all connected base products; amount of power currently stored in all connected Batteries; and amount of daytime/nighttime remaining.

Using in a cuboid built base will act as though the entire cuboid is connected even without wiring. Useful for a sleek and hidden power set.

Release history[edit | edit source]

  • Synthesis - Recipe for blueprint changed
  • Beyond - Added as a base building product.
  • Beyond 2.09.1 - Fixed an issue that caused Batteries and Solar Panels not to attach correctly to building roofs.
  • Living Ship - Blueprint changed, gold and chromatic metal quantities were both reduced
