The Small Wind Turbine (formerly known as the Wind Vane) is a smaller version of the 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 Backpack. The Small Wind Turbine will only produce power while in windy weather, but not during a storm.

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

Production[edit | edit source]

  • One Small Wind Turbine produces 0.5 units/sec, or 8 secs/bar worth of power (same as the small solar panel). Without any other source of energy, a single wind vane will fill a backpack main battery in about 20 seconds.
  • When placed on any slot, a Small Wind Turbine will fill one bar of battery in 8 seconds. So, for example, the 8-bar battery of a Smelting Furnace will be filled by one wind vane in 64 seconds.
  • When 8 Small Wind Turbines are placed onto a Medium Storage, it will create the same amount of power as 4 medium wind turbines, effectively minimizing the space needed. This is useful for rovers, where space is at a premium.
