This page is about the Solar Panel from IndustrialCraft 2. For other uses, see Solar Panel.
The Solar Panel from IndustrialCraft 2 is an upgraded version of the Generator that produces EU from the sun. The Solar Panel will only create EU during a clear day, and if there are no opaque blocks above it. It will create 1EU/t. You can determine whether or not your solar panel is working by right clicking on the block, in the GUI there is a sun icon, if it is lit the panel is working and creating EU, and if the sun icon is grey, the panel is not creating any EU.

The Solar Panel is used to create IndustrialCraft 2's EU (energy) using solar power. It can be used to charge any tier of energy storage unit by either connecting the two blocks by placing them directly next to each other, or using one of IC2's different cable types. There is a slot in the GUI that is for charging tools, batteries, and battery packs. The Solar Panel can also be upgraded to the Advanced Solar Panel, the LV Solar Array, and the Solar Helmet
