The RTG provides constant and reliable power for deployed science equipment. Its cost is significantly higher than that of the solar panel (unless you are very far away from the sun - Dres and beyond), but the RTG has the advantage that it doesn't require direct sunlight, so it still works when on the night side of a planet.
The Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator is useful for purposes such as:
- Traveling so far away from the sun that solar panels become insufficient.
- Operating science equipment on the night-side of a celestial body.
|“|| While small, this small radioisotope thermoelectric generator can still provide plenty of power to run deployed science experiments.
Careful calibration should be considered. Needs a deployed central station to operate.

The amount of power the RTG generates depends on the engineer level of the Kerbal placing it.
