Solar Towers are used to produce a very large, quick, and infinite supply of Power to various machines found in the mod pack such as the Quantum Extractor, Powder Sifter, Ansible Network and much more. When provided with the proper amount of light, the Solar Tower produces 12u of power.
Power Station (Solar Tower): Edit
- All Solar Towers will work with artificial light such as light produced from torches or lights found on your ship. Even Chromatic dirt or Liquid Aether placed in the background will work. Unlike with Arrays and Panels however, doing so (much less combining the two) will not increase its max output by any amount.
- Given the above combined with fact that you can place up to 5 Solar Panels into a space only 1 block taller than the area that a solar tower takes up (taking necessary platforms into account), it is actually more efficient to use panels rather than towers.
