I don t beleve in perfect ratios for solar.
Best solar panel setup factorio.
Solar panels are an unlimited source of free energy that produce no pollution.
Mk1 a mark one is just a bunch of poles with y know solar panels mixed in madzuri nov 2016 mk2 focuses on ratios mk3 uses roboports to construct the tile mk4 uses a diagonal spacing to reduce roboports and ups mk5 makes use of most if not all of the radar range.
During daylight hours every panel provides the maximum power level 60kw.
For each 5 solar panels you need 3 accumulators.
You need 17 solar panels for each steam engine running at max capacity.
Keep in mind that these numbers are approximate you may want to have a buffer for laser turrets if nothing else.
Or more precisely you need power consumption in w 30 kw solar panels.
Looks like 912 accumulators to 16 solar panels which is a 0 560 75 ratio.
There are either 5 36 extra accumulators or 6 38 missing solar panels.
2628 accumulators 3118 solar panels 0 8428.
The optimal ratio is 0 84 21 25 accumulators per solar panel and 23 8 solar panels per megawatt required by your factory this ratio accounts for solar panels needed to charge the accumulators this means that you need 1 428 mw of production of solar panels and 100mj of storage to provide 1 mw of power over one day night cycle.
I leave a space to walk between.
This layout has 170 accumulators and 196 panels.
This means one solar panel produces an average of 42 kw over one day and night cycle.
Though in all honesty you probably aren t ready for solar panels yet if the cost bothers you.
The ideal ratio is 0 84 accumulators panel.
The optimal ratio is 0 84 thus a more ideal setup would be 21 accumulators to 25 solar panels.
Plop a sub station down and fill it with solar pannels.
Overall this design has a continuous power rating excluding roboport drain of 8 232mw.
Just add as needed for each.
As for which to actually pick i d say it s up to your preference cilya s design with accumulators instead of a roboport is the only one with perfect 0 86 ratio among popular designs used by factorio players.
You can always sacrifice a bit of the optimal ratio for a cleaner design but you should stay in the area of 0 8 0 9.
Solar panels and accumulators optimal ratio.
