The Small Wind Turbine is a power generation item and a smaller version of the Icon Wind Turbine.png Medium Wind Turbine. The Small Wind Turbine is a widget and a power source that can be placed on a Platform, Vehicle, or on the utility slots of an Astroneer's Icon Backpack.png Backpack. The Small Wind Turbine will only produce power while in windy weather.

The Small Wind Turbine will create a Small Platform under it when placed by itself.

Uses[edit | edit source]

  • Power Production Rate: 0.5 U/s
  • A Small Wind Turbine will fill one bar of battery in 8 seconds.
  • A Small Wind Turbine produces the same as a Icon Solar.png Small Solar Panel.
  • It is 4x more power and space efficient to fill a Icon Storage.png Medium Storage with eight Small Wind Turbines than to use a single Icon Wind Turbine.png Medium Wind Turbine on a T2 slot. The only downside is it requires seven more Icon Glass.png Glass and an additional two Icon Resin.png Resin. This is useful for rovers, where space is at a premium.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In Early Access, the Small Wind Turbine was previously named Wind Vane.
