Description[edit | edit source]

The Wind Turbine is a Power source that can be placed on two adjacent slots of a Module or a Vehicle. It works only in windy weather. It is bigger than the Wind Vane.

Note that vehicle movements does not "produce" wind. Wind only depends on the location and weather.

Production[edit | edit source]

A turbine produce 1 units/sec, or 4 secs/bar worth of energy. This is the same as 2 wind vanes or 0.5 solar panel (from the printer). When placed on Modules, a turbine will fill one column of battery in 4 seconds. So for instance, the 8-bar battery of a Vehicle Bay will be filled by one turbine in 32 seconds. It is half as effective as a big Solar Panel.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

The Wind Turbine can be crafted in the Printer, using 2 pieces of Aluminium.

Other Facts[edit | edit source]

The Wind Turbine also functions in space, though this is believed to be a bug.
