  1. Energy output depends on the distance and angle to the Sun. The value is achieved at Kerbin's distance, with the panel pointed directly at the Sun.


The SP-W 2x3 Photovoltaic Panels are a mid-sized set of deployable solar panels. Unlike the OX-4W/L, the SP-W/L feature a heavy protective shroud. This shroud does not give any benefit to the panels itself, so it is just for aesthetics.

The SP-W deploy a 3×2 solar cell layout. There is also a SP-L 1x6 version available with a 1x6 layout. The panels generate electric charge.
