A RedPower 2 Solar Panel is a device used for producing Blutricity.
A single panel produces 2 amperes and 60 volts (~120W) but when in packs its voltage can increase up to a maximum of 100 volts (packs of 120-128) which increases the output of each panel to a maximum of 200W.
To produce Blutricity it needs to be daytime and the panels need to see the sky, although it still works if the sky is blocked by some transparent blocks (glass, chests, etc.).
Once you have placed the panels, connect them to a Battery Box with either Blue Alloy Wire, Jacketed Bluewire or a combination thereof. This will feed all the energy generated by the panels directly into the Battery Box.
The panels and any Blutricity block can transfer energy between each other, so you will not need to connect all panels or Blutricity blocks to the Blue Alloy Wire, so long as all panels or Blutricity blocks are adjacent to one another. Solar Panels have a resistance of 0.02 ohms, the same as Blue Alloy Wire or Jacketed Bluewire.
