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.

Original Wind Turbines

Wind Turbines are items that generate power when wind is blowing, and they are able to produce power at any time of day. The amount of power that wind turbines generate only depends on if wind is blowing and not on the speed of the turbine. Each planet has different wind rates, making some planets better for using turbines than others. Wind turbines also produce more power than a solar panel of the same size.

Small Wind Turbine[]

A smaller version of the Wind Turbine, the Small Wind Turbine is a power source that can be placed on any Tier 1 slot, including in the player's Backpack. Small Wind Turbines produce 1.5 U/s of power.

Medium Wind Turbine[]

XL Wind Turbine[]

The XL Wind Turbine is a power source that can be placed anywhere on the ground, and must be deployed before it can produce power. While deployed it does not require a platform, although while undeployed you can store it on a Tier 4 slot. It has 3 cable slots that will equally distribute the 17 U/s of power it produces.
