Medium Wind Turbine
|Medium Wind Turbine|
The Medium Wind Turbine is a Power source that can be placed on two adjacent slots of a Module or a Vehicle. Just like the smaller Wind Vane, it generates power from the Wind, but will not generate power during a storm. Presumably this is because real life wind turbines will lock the rotors to prevent damage from spinning too fast.
Note: A moving vehicle 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: twice as much power as a small wind turbine and half of a large Solar Panel. When placed on a Module, 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.

Other Facts[edit | edit source]
The Wind Turbine also functions in space, though this is believed to be a bug.
They are useful for powering rovers and some bases in the large caves because the caves usually have drafts of wind. This is not a bug.
