One panel creates enough energy to keep one PB-ION Electric Propulsion System at maximum thrust and a distance to Kerbol similar to that of Kerbin, under the premise that it is able to orient itself perfectly to the sun. Adding the solar panel radially allows a perfect orientation at all thrusting directions; the craft may need to be rolled to allow a decent enough coverage.
The size of the panels, and their look, make them perfect for using on space stations. Unfortunately space stations just need only some electric charge as the three large consumers, rover wheels, scientific equipment and ion engines, are useless or at least get useless after some time.
|“|| The single largest solar array available for purchase, the Gigantor XL offers tremendous generation potential from a compact initial package.
