***50% generation on Ice Planet


Adding the cost of one connection, 1 metal, to the cost of building the actual solar panel, the power generation per metal is therefore 10KW per metal regardless of size. The benefit of using larger Solar Panels is denser power generation on the same area and reduced cost and time of maintenance.

Day-Night cycleEdit

The amount of Power generated goes from none to max at dawn, and goes down at sundown.

On planets with an atmosphere (Desert and Ice), the day/night cycle is 3:2. On airless planets, the day/night cycle is 1:1. It can differ in custom challenges.
