Building one Solar Array at your outpost will provide that outpost with 6 units of power.

Once you’ve found a suitable place to install the Solar Array from the outpost building view, you can rotate the Solar Array to finetune its position. If the Solar Array glows red, you will not be able to place it in your base. You will receive an error message explaining why you cannot place it down, and you will need to resolve the warning before you can build the Solar Array.
