Uses[edit | edit source]

  • Power Production Rate: 0.5 U/s
  • Small Solar Panels will only work when there is sunlight that is able to hit the panel. It will not work if there is terrain blocking direct view of the sun, or if underground.
  • A Small Solar Panel will fill one bar of battery in 8 seconds.
  • A Small Solar Panel produces the same as a Small Wind Turbine.
  • It is 2x more power and space-efficient to fill a Medium Storage with eight Small Solar Panel than to use a single Medium Solar Panel. However, if the Storage is not flattened only half of the panels will receive sunlight.
