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 better wind rates, making certain planets better for using wind on than solar.

Small Wind Turbine[edit | edit source]

A smaller version of the Wind Turbine, the Small Wind Turbine is a widget, and a power source that can be placed on a PlatformVehicle, or on the utility slots of an astroneer's Backpack. The Small Wind Turbine will only produce power while in windy weather. It must be researched first before being able to craft one. Small Wind Turbine produces 1.5 U/s of power (formerly 0.5 U/s).

Medium Wind Turbine[edit | edit source]

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 Small Wind Turbine, it generates power from the wind. Medium Wind Turbine produces 5 U/s of power (formerly 1 U/s).

Large Wind Turbine[edit | edit source]

The Large Wind Turbine is a power source that can be place on 4 adjacent slots of a Module or Vehicle. It produces 10 U/s.

XL Wind Turbine[edit | edit source]

The XL Wind Turbine is a power source that can be placed anywhere on the ground. It has 3 cable slots that will equally distribute the power. It produces 17 U/s.
