If you are looking to power your base on the Scorched Earth map, an item you can use is a wind turbine, but you will need to get a few things before you can make it. 

How to get a Wind Turbine in Ark: Survival Evolved

To make a wind turbine, you will need the following materials listed below.

  • 75 Metal Ingot 
  • 20 Cementing Paste
  • 25 Electronics
  • Level 50

Along with the materials listed above, you will also need to make a fabricator, which you can craft in a smithy with the following materials.

  • 50 Sparkpowder
  • 15 Crystal
  • 10 Oil
  • 35 Metal Ingot
  • 20 Cementing Paste
  • Level 48

If you don’t know where to get most of these materials you can lean how to with the following guides.

As for the other materials, to get crystal you will need to mine it with a pick usually in the snow biomes on certain maps. For other maps you will need to search the ocean.

To get electronics, you will need to make it with Silica Pearls and Metal ingots, which you can make from metal ore.

That said, once you get the fabricator made, you will need to assemble the materials needed to make the wind turbine. Once you get the turbine made, you will be able to use it as a very efficient alternative means of power. 

However, you will need to place the turbine in a location that has a lot of wind, or you may find it stop working when it reaches around 20% wind strength. 

his power level also applies to other maps such as The Center and The Island and Crystal Isles. But other maps like Aberration don’t even have wind, so you won’t be able to use turbines on that map.
