The Solar Array is a power module in Astroneer. It requires sunlight to provide power.

Unlike the Medium Solar Panel, the Solar Array isn't required to be placed on a platform.

Uses[edit | edit source]

  • Power Production Rate: 8 U/s
  • Solar Arrays are cheaper than RTGs, but are absolutely not portable due to being Tier 3 sized objects even when packaged.
  • In comparison to RTGs, Solar Arrays are an ideal match to bases which already have lots of Batteries for power storage, since they don't provide power at night.
  • Solar Arrays are ostensibly the best power producer for locations with permanent or frequent sunlight.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It produces twice as much power as a player-made RTG (4 U/s).
  • The Solar array is 16x as powerful as the Small Solar and 4x as much as the Medium Solar.
