This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
I was building a house and thought it would be a nice idea to have some solar panels attached to one of the walls outside. But it turned out that no-one had made a wall version of the roof solar panel yet, so I made it myself!

Use bb.moveobjects on or the ALT key to attach it to the top part of the wall, you should be able to place it without these on the rest of the wall.

You can find this solar panel in the Wall Attachments section with the name "Solar Panel - Wall". It also has the exact same price as the original roof version: 850 simoleons!

Requires Eco Lifestyle

Keep in mind that this is my first ever creation and that not everything is perfect. It seems that snow actually builds up on the bottom instead of the top I'm still working on this! I also intend on changing the location of the green lights to the front of the panel like the original, but I'm also still struggling with that. I will upload the new versions once I figured it out!

looking forward to the update, I am sure you'll figure it out. I am downloading it anyway because the snow on the bottom isn't going to bug me.

Just disable snow from piling on it at all. Open in Sims 4 Studio and in the tags under function check "Never receives snow"
