- "Electricity from the sun."
There is no crafting possible with just a solar panel. Instead, it efficiently converts light into electricity. Tapping on a solar panel will display a menu to remove it or show a "generation rate" scale which indicates how quickly it's working.
A solar panel will generate electricity whenever there's enough light (preferably from the sun) striking it while no other block or bench is on top or above it. Glass will allow light through, but will block a solar panel's operation if there is no air gap between them. Artificial light sources such as lanterns and chandeliers allow only low levels of power generation, even if massed.
Any electrically connected crafting surface trying to draw power can use the current generated, but it's most practical to connect with a flywheel and store it for release at a higher rate. Multiple solar panels may be connected to one flywheel in order to increase electric productivity if needed. When no other crafting surface is drawing power, a solar panel will accumulate any generated electricity and release it once there is a demand. It doesn't store much, though.
A solar panel does not require any of the usual fuels, instead it must be exposed to light.
