Forza Horizon 5 solar panels are a hot commodity at the moment with this epic racer. As we delve into the weekly seasonal challenges of Forza Horizon 5, players getting into the habit of unlocking limited-time vehicles through challenges.

One of the most recent challenges asks that you find solar panels once more, so we've brought together a guide that will show you where to find all Forza Horizon 5 solar panels while explaining why you need them and what to do with them when you find them. 

Where are the Solar Panels in Forza Horizon 5?

Solar panels in Forza Horizon 5 aren't particularly common, and you may be scratching your head over where to go to find 25 of them. Luckily, there is one spot on the map that houses plenty of solar panels that are primed and ready to be smashed through. On the western side of the map just below the motorway in Cordillera, you will find all the Forza Horizon 5 solar panels you need.

Why do you need Solar Panels in Forza Horizon 5?

Solar panels in Forza Horizon 5 are at the heart of one of the #Forzathon weekly challenges, which earn players Forza points. The challenge for this week is titled "Lights Out", and requires players to smash 25 solar panels - a little more than last time but without a time limit. It is a timed challenge however, so you only have until January 13 to get through it, and it will reward you with three points towards the season. This is the reason to find Forza Horizon 5 solar panels, and leads us to our next point. 

  • Make sure you're familiar with the full Forza Horizon 5 map before embarking on this challenge

Unlike the last time this challenge worked its way into a Forza challenge, you won't need to smash the vehicles in a specific vehicle, or within a timeframe. That really frees you up to smash the Forza Horizon 5 solar panels however you please.

There should be enough solar panels there to get through all 25 in one go, but should you find yourself with more to go, just back out of the game and load up the world once more. The solar panels should then be ready to smash down all over again. If you want to smash them in style, check out our Forza Horizon 5 Goliath glitch, so you can purchase the most expensive cars in the game. 

That's everything you need to know about the solar panels in Forza Horizon 5. Fancy doing this with a friend? Check out our guide to Forza Horizon 5 split screen.
