Astroneer Wiki

Hello all editors and users of the Astroneer Wiki! We are in the process of updating and switching over to use the new Fandom Desktop skin on the wiki. There will be many changes over the coming days, but the main goal is to keep the wiki feeling the same, as much as we can! If you notice any issues once the swap is made, please post them to the Admin Noticeboard so we can address it right away. We are also going to be completing the update to the Astroneer Wiki:Style guide, so there is a more up to date guide on how to style the wiki going forward.

The Medium Solar Panel is a power generation item.

It only produces power when exposed to sunlight. The two panels are folded upward over the center when it is not exposed to sunlight. The Medium Solar Panel doesn't have any power output cables, therefore must be placed on a Platform with 2-slot connection in order to get produced power.


Output Input Module
Medium Solar Panel Copper
Small Printer


  • Power Production Rate: 4 U/s
  • A Medium Solar Panel will fill one column of a medium battery in 4 seconds.
  • A Medium Solar Panel produces four times as much power as a Small Solar Panel.



  • The Pre-Release version had a similarity to pathfinder from the movie "The Martian". It has 3 panels, which were changed to 2 along with a new model later in Pre-Alpha.
