Hey so i downloaded this mod and trying it out i cant work out how to set it up so it produces power.
A basic set up guide is appreciated.

The idea is to make a setup similar to nuclear power, the solar panels produce heat instead of electricity, you have to take the heat to basic heat exchangers so they can produce steam to move steam engines
The panels take some time to start boiling water, especially if you make only a few of them, It's better to place 10-20 panels per heat-boiler
The panels don't need power lines like normal panels, just place them next to each other and the heat will transfer from panel to panel just like they do with heat-pipes.
You can place the heat exchanger next to the panel or use heat-pipes to take the heat to them just make sure the heat connections are next to each other
