Small UI to monitor power levels of solar panels and accumulators.


Have you sometimes wondered if you need more solar panels or more accumulators?
While the answer to this question is usually "yes", this small mod gives you are more detailed insight.


PowerMon gives you a new item (Power Monitor) that you can use to monitor energy production/storage in your solar panels and accumulators.

Simply research the technology, craft a power monitor and use it to select an accumulator or solar panel.

Add a name so that you recognise it and it will be added to the list.
