A RUST Power Minute: Wind Turbine

This quick RUST guide video, RUST Power Minute: Wind Turbine, is brought to you by our partners Malonik & Gal.

In this video series, they take on the challenge of introducing, explaining, and showing you how individual components are used in the RUST electrical and water systems, within 60 seconds. In this video, they tackle the Wind Turbine component, which is primarily used for drawing in and sustaining large amounts of power.

With that, you’re here to watch their video!

What’s up my salty boys and girls, my name’s Gal. Welcome to the RUST Power Minute. Where I have 60 seconds to teach you about everything you need to know about a RUST electricity component, coming at you every day until we’re done.


Starting with power sources, and the first cab off the rank is the Wind Turbine, working day and night, a bit like your mum. She costs about 500 scrap at the Bandit Camp, other than that she can found in superior crates or with oil rig scientist.


Once you’ve got your hands on it, it’s 125 scrap to research it. A bit of a tricky one to place, it doesn’t like uneven surfaces or crossing foundations, but it does fit on one foundation or ceiling surface.


We recommend that you stand far enough back so that you can look at the horizon, it makes placing it easier and just so you know, the wind can be blocked by other structures, who knew. So, build at least three foundations from any raised surface.


Wind power will be worse the closer you get to sea level, to fix this you can either build tall structures to get a better breeze. You’ve probably seen these kinds of things around the place or straight up, live on a mountain. Depending on height wind blockage and whether you can get anywhere between 0 and 150 power out.


Power comes out from the bottom. If you have more than one, they play nice with root combiners, just remember that the wind is random even at high elevations. Assume a minimum power flow and put essential circuits first in line. So that when power runs short you only lose a couple of lights or something non-essential.
